Whether you're new to the craft of woodworking and looking for a great first project or you're a seasoned craftsman showcasing a piece of treasured wood, it's hard to deny the appeal of a cutting board.

The techniques can be as simple or as complex as you like and the finished designs can be tailored to suit any style or taste. For beginners, these gateway projects are a great way to try out a new hobby easily, quickly, and with limited tools. For old hands, making cutting boards is a gorgeous way to showcase a beautiful piece of lumber or to hone and highlight a complex technique you’re trying to perfect. Best of all, upon completion, a cutting board is a project that can be proudly used as a sturdy workhorse in your own kitchen or given as a holiday treasure to friend or loved one.

Extensive photography and clear, concise instruction make even the most complex techniques easy to understand and conquer. A gallery of inspiring designs sourced from a wide array of makers is also included to spark the creation of your cutting board styles.
