Re: My First Cutting Board


Very nice.

I just had to buy some 4/4 maple for a project. It was about $3.24/board ft from the only place nearby that sells rough sawn anything. In contrast, a friend was doing up a couple walnut cutting boards as gifts at the same time, and said he paid over $7/ft.

OMG!!
Sorry but with all the talk about walnut I can't help but post this.
A bar top I built for a friend many years ago. The wood was free.

Re: My First Cutting Board


Sometimes woodworking is not an inexpensive hobby.

No wonder those companies that specialize in reclaimed lumber make so much money.

HKShroud...
The bar is gorgeous. Free is much better than cheap.
We’re on the market now for walnut to make a few
chessboards for gifts. We have a mill about 20 minutes away
that we previously purchased walnut from.
