Well here you go guys, my first post of something I've made. This is a special cutting board I made as a gift for a family member. I am normally a very modest guy and don't show off things I've made, but I thought I'd share this one with you. It is made out of 1 1/4" Quilted Maple and Figured Cherry. The handles laminated to match the board and are pinned on with brass pins. It has a hand rubbed food safe oil finish. Not a real complicated project, but the grain made it challenging. Thanks, Chuck

This is Fantastic !!! Mother Nature made it and you turned it into an heirloom !!! the curly maple was fantastic by itself but I like the cherry accents together with the maple ! NICE JOB

That's a beautiful and functional piece you've made there Chuck. I know your family member that received this will be very pleased with it - and the others may be jealous!
If it were in my kitchen, though; it would never get carved on! Too nice... OPG3

That is very well done, I would hope no one would really cut anything on such a piece of art as that wood is, seems once in a while we come across such pieces here is one I have and have no idea what I shall do with it. For now it hangs on the wall between the living room and dinning room.

In the last photo the one on the right has since been finished it may become a bench or coffee table.

Jerry, this would make a very cool wall clock.
