Finished my cutting boards, made 2 with breadboard ends and 1 as Paul has shown in his recent Christmas Projects video.
The joinery on the breadboards isn’t as tight as i would have liked but there was a definite improvement from the first to the second. Overall i’m happy with the results but i think i’ll be staying away from birdseye maple til I improve my skills some more … this stuff was very difficult to work with as the grain around the eyes ran in all directions.
Here are some pics.

Hey Barry, I’m just having a look to find out what is POISONOUS in the breadboard stakes.
Yours are BEAUTIFUL. Lovely wood.If s.one had gave me one of those i’d be delighted.
I gave my little niece my first attempt at Paul’s Shaker candlebox for an (early ) Christmas present. Her mum and co. thought it was the best thing since sliced bread.You’re looking at it with a critical eye so the next will be better. It’s a work of art- really23 December 2014 at 4:17 am #122522dbornParticipant
