Minnesota winters can be a bit long. I am blessed in many ways. One is a wife that actually likes my woodworking hobby. So I spend as much time in my shop building stuff. Tables and Quilt racks are my main stay.







But one of the things that seems to bring the biggest smiles is as simple as it gets. Cutting boards.

Some are gifts for family and close friends. Others are sold on an as ordered basis. If I wanted to get into the shipping them around the country I could sell allot of the cutting boards.

I did sell all of the latest cutting boards. Not out to make any money on them. Just enough to cover my costs so I can keep the hobby affordable.

Ken, this is really beautiful work! Thanks for sharing with us.

p.s. I have family in St. Paul. They are visiting down here to get away from the cold. Having lunch with them today. Don't be jealous!

Lucky them! It is going to drop 46* from our high today to the low tomorrow! We are looking at a very cold week (again).

If I still lived in Indiana I'd drive quickly over to buy one of everything!

Your woodworking is amazing. I had a (now passed) client make me a lazy Susan that resembles the wood used in your cutting boards. The colors are gorgeous, he had remnants of African/Brazilian wood laying around.

I'm a painting contractor but love to tinker with staining and such, want to make some tables of my own to sell around here just for a change of pace. I don't have a shop though!

Keep it up you have a real talent!!
