Sometimes the most ill-advised ideas have the best outcomes. That was certainly the case with my cutting board. I took a woodworking class where we were supposed to make a simple cutting board. Somehow I turned that into an idea for a butcher’s block made of hexagons. When I told the instructor, he said something along the lines of “that probably isn’t a good idea, and I can’t wait to see how it turns out”. The board consists of more than 150 pieces glued together. There are a few minor gaps, but considering all the cuts had to perfect to make the hexagons line up, I’m really pleased with how it came together.
