After the success with my first attempts at cutting boards from David Picciuto’s book, I decided to try again. This time I went with the plans for a butcher block design. You can make some really interesting designs and the result has the end grain facing up so it’s kind to your knives. I used walnut, maple and mahogany for this one. The plans were easy to follow and now that I have the hang of it, I think I have a better idea of how to manipulate the design from the start.
