“A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hand and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist” –Louis Nizer
This Cutting Board was a special order that I received from a repeat customer, Wynette, who lives in Florida. Last year about this time she made her first cutting board purchase, and she said that it “worked out great” except that her husband “would like a bigger one.” So she selected a specific pattern from one of the other boards in my portfolio and asked for me to make a bigger one.
Well this is the largest cutting board so far for me. It’s made from black walnut, cherry, and maple and measures 19 1/2 ” x 21″ x 1 1/4″. It took me about 4 days to complete.
Tomorrow it will begin it’s journey from the Great Lakes State to the Sunshine State compliments of the USPS.
I’m guessing that the “Diamond Back” name for the board is rather self-explanitory.
