Carolina Girl (Cely)
My son made this wonderful cutting block for me/us for Christmas.  He loves woodcrafting as a hobby and enjoys even more restoring vintage tools and machines.  I thought I had better take a pic since I'm already marking and scratching it up.  He used walnut, cherries and maples to do all the different designs on it.  The wood is turned a certain way so it doesn't dull my expensive knives.  I'm so proud of him....perhaps a little of my craftiness DID manage to get into his genes....haha

about 18x12 and 1 inch thick

    Magnificently done, Cely! It reminds me so much of one my dad made for me more than 40 years ago, and I still have it. What a precious gift from your son. Happy New Year.
