Carving Board

More than just a cutting board, this project adds a routed, decorative design that serves a practical purpose, as well.

For a woodworking project, cutting boards carry a lot of appeal. You can make one (or more) in a short amount of time. A cutting board requires little wood — often you can use scraps from other projects. And the skills necessary to make one fall within the realm of beginners. For all that simplicity though, cutting boards are fertile ground for improvisation and customization. There are even online communities dedicated to the subject. And they make great gifts. What more could you ask for?
