This book offers a wide array of ideas for making cutting boards, using various woods and grain patterns to create designs that are both eye-catching and practical. The 15 projects range from simple to complex, covering every step from developing the design to applying food-safe finishes.
Examples include boards with built-in ramekins and an over-the-sink colander, as well as a pizza peel, a cheeseboard, and even a board with an integrated tablet holder. The author explains techniques for making breadboard ends and inlays, and adding feet and knife storage slots.
Project instructions are supplemented by detailed photos, lists of materials, tools and supplies, and dimensioned drawings (that you can also download and print full-size for use as cutting templates). A photo gallery at the end of the book shows 22 finished projects to inspire your own designs.
