Cut-off cutting boards

Not wanting to hijack JFPNCM (Jon) thread on his cutting board...thought I'd post a few of the ones I did over the winter after the holidays. I had a ton of cut-off's and found this is the best way to go about using up the wood. That and the fact that the wife and kid were all about me making these and selling them. Not much of a salesman, so I have made other arrangements These were all finished in a food grade mineral oil and bee's wax

Hope you guys like em.. I found to my surprise they were actually alot of fun to make and a couple of them were quite the challenge both in terms of cutting accuracy and in glue-ups..Kinda pic heavy.. I have another dozen sitting on my router table this afternoon, waiting for an oil bath and wax.

and if that wasn't annoying enough, here are a few more. This bath of pics, the boards were just wet down for the pics...need to be oiled up and waxed yet...Then there are another dozen like I said long grain bread boards waiting in line..

@TwoSkies57

Bill: Excellent boards, I really appreciate the posts! I have no doubt there were some very challenging cuts and glue ups involved in those. It will take some time to reason through how one would layout those pieces to achieve the really dramatic 3D effect, particularly as seen in the 1st and 2nd images in your 2nd post.

What "maple" did you use for the white keys on the keyboard? I just randomly picked a few pieces but they certainly don't stand out as well as yours do.

Again, amazing boards, thanks for the post.

Bill you have some beautiful boards there. I like to make boards so I can appreciate how challenging some of those are.

Bill, those boards are quite handsome. A couple of the pics in your first thread made my eyes go cross-eyed - they were amazing.

Either lead, follow, or get out of the way.

Wow you are very creative with your ideas . I love the ones that darn near look 3D , and the differant thicknesses look fantastic too

Bill those are fantastic, like I said awhile ago it becomes addictive they are so much fun to make. If you are giving them away, you will have no trouble finding people who want them. Most of the ones I made were given to charity auctions and some went for $125. and they were not as creative as yours. I never got into the 3D stuff.

Be sure to show the next set of pictures. You are sure doing a nice job on those. I hope the people who get them appreciate them as much as we do here.

Those are great, Bill, just great!! We've been making cutting boards for a while but not that creative. Fun to make, for sure. Every time I get a handful of Walnut, Maple, and Cherry scraps I start gluing up for another cutting board although the pattern is random, if that qualifies as a pattern. I need to try one of those 3D versions.
