Free woodworking plans to make a wide selection of cutting boards for your kitchen or bar.
You can make this nifty rack for less than 10 dollars and mount it inside a cabinet door to stash your cutting board out of sight. It goes together in a snap since it only requires a 6-ft. 1x2 and two L-brackets.
Even if you have a plank wide enough to make the cutting board in one piece, I suggest gluing up the cutting board from several pieces for three reasons: to minimize wood movement across the width of the board, to minimize warpage, and to provide vertical grains on the top of the cutting board.
This is a link to a Google 3D SketchUp drawing for a cutting board. You will need the SketchUp software to download this drawing and its freely available online. We do not provide support for this software. Not all drawings have the measurements displayed but you can use the measurement tool in SketchUp to easily and accurately determine the dimensions of each lumber part. Most drawings do not have instructions, its assumed you can build it based on the completed drawing provided.
Make this awesome end grain houndstooth pattern cutting board. At the link it is all broken down for you to follow. It is a repeat pattern, obviously, so much cutting of a few pieces. Build it using the free plans.
On the page of this website you will find pictures and text to accompany you through the process of making your own boards like these. I cannot take credit for the idea, it was Incras! I could not do this without my Incra Fence. You may be able to!
