Picture of Make a simple wooden cutting board
A couple of friends are getting married next month and since I know they like the cutting boards I've made for myself I thought I'd make one for them as a gift.  I don't have a table saw (or laser cutter) at home so I made it at techshop.

I used a few pieces of cherry and a piece of purpleheart but any hardwood would work.  In addition to the wood you'll need some waterproof glue (I used Titebond III) and a food-safe finish (I used Good Stuff).

Let's get started.

Step 1: Prep the wood

Use a chop saw to cut the wood to the same length, then run it through a planer to make it all the same thickness.  After planing the wood, cut it into 1" strips using a table saw.
How did you print their names on it? I want to sign my work but don't know whats best...

he put their names in the wood with a laser cutter. :)

This sounds too interesting that you have made your
own personal wood cutting board with little engineering. However, I am ore
interested to know that how you managed to print your name on your Wood Cutting Board? Please also provide information on this as it is looking so elegant. Thanks
and keep sharing the nice information.

LOL at that last line, this looks awesome. I'm new at woodworking but this looks do-able for me. I'm going to attempt this for my gift to my parents. Thanks for this clear guide!
