How to Make a Cutting Board in 20 Minutes

For this woodworking project we get the stopwatch out to show how quickly you can make one of these cutting boards in about 20 minutes (minus glue and finish drying). Here I’m using 8/4 walnut for a super thick and heavy cutting board. Yours doesn’t need to be this thick. It’s just what I had laying around. All it takes is a few cuts on the table saw, some contrasting wood (here I’m using maple) and some clamps and glue.

A simple and elegant design that most anyone with limited tools can make. I sell these cutting boards for around $50-$60 at handmade events and I encourage you to try the same. Be safe, stay passionate and make something!
