  1. GREAT video David, the take away is that things don’t always go as planned and the key is to keep the project on track and look what turned out. Personally, I like the larger dowels, so a win for me! !! !!!

  2. David, great video! I have been a longtime follower of your channel, way back from the Drunken Woodworker days, and I have always enjoyed your videos. Beautiful cutting board by the way. I love the breadboard ends. As a furniture maker, I can say you are spot on with your breadboard design and construction concepts concerning wood movement. I always look forward to your next video, David.

  3. Ayeeee thanks for the shoutout! The amount of money available for cutting boards is truly mind-blowing.

    A few of our best strategies:
    – Find a niche, optimize your boards for that type of customer, and sell sell sell!

    – Talk to everyone you know about what you sell! You never know when someone’s cousin’s aunt’s brother is the State’s #2 producing Realtor looking for nicer closing gifts…

    1. I´ve watched some of your videos in past and always amazed how markets can be so diferent. I live in EU, Portugal to be more precise and the cutting board market here is so “poor”. Nobody would pay like 50€ for a cutting board, so its not worth to make them. the only market we have here on this categorie is restaurants cheap pine boards, and thats it ahah
      Keep the good work!

    2. @Yohann Santos That could be the difference between end users and business customers. The business customers aren’t buying a bread/cutting board, they’re buying a marketing tool and some good will. They probably wouldn’t spend that much on themselves either 🙂

    3. Jennie and Davis I love your videos and watch them all the time. Question, are you in the Reserves or Guard? I retired after 22 yrs in the Air Force and just wanted to say thank you for your service as well!

    4. I’m just stepping out of my comfort zone (ie safe job / empty wallet zone) and starting my own cutting board business. Took huge amounts of encouragement to get past my fear of doing something different than what I’ve done my whole life, but I think it is time to do that for which I am destined. Keeping the old job for now while I ramp up.

  4. Great one sir! Now, the question is, will you be giving this board to your mom and have her store it with the endgrain one you gave her? Most top tier (mostly endgrain) boards I’ve made, tends to be used as show pieces for food serving instead of being used as the work horse cutting board they should be used for. Everyone that gets one says it’s too nice to cut on haha! 👍👍

  5. I’d have to call this a classic “Make Something“ YouTube video. 100% David Picciuto including Sand In the Place Where You Live. Thanks for sharing your talent 🎉

    1. The only talent this guy has is woodworking, entertaining, designing and being an all round cool guy apart from that he’s talentless 🤣

  6. Really beautiful work, Dave! 😃
    Brilliant the way you did it! I’ve never seen a cutting board like that!
    Stay safe there with your family! 🖖😊

  7. I would have thought to glue the dowels at least into the ends, if not the body, so they would stay put, but still allow the body boards to move. So I learned something here! I think it’s awesome that you encourage people to take your designs and run with them. We gotta help eachother out. Thanks for sharing!

    1. One thing you can do too is tap them in 90% of the way and put a dab a glue around the top before sending it home. That way you have it glued and know it won’t get into the middle tenon. Probably not necessary but it does work

  8. Going with the flow is the only way to go. Projects always have hiccups, changes, etc

    This is a damn nice cutting board

  9. That is a beautiful cutting board! I’ve seen some fancy boards but this one is a classic example of the “less is more” design.

  10. Hi David, I received your Cutting Board Book for Christmas and refer to it regularly for ideas and tips … thank you for creating it. I wasn’t nuts about the breadboard style at first, but now, being able to see it happen, I’m in love. So thanks for helping this rookie out. I intend to create cutting boards to bolster my retirement in a couple of years, and totally value your insight. Awesome, just awesome!

  11. I do cutting boards and sell at local farmer’s markets. I’ve reached a point where I’m making money even after spending it on non-woodworking things I wanted. The best thing is I don’t have to do it every weekend, just when I feel like it.

  12. When I started up several years back, you were one of my prime sources for ideas. One of my best-selling products has been the wine caddy. I actually do more sales on smaller pieces like that at shows, and while the cutting boards are the big draw, I am definitely trying to bring the people in for some of the bigger ticket items.
    I just picked up a cnc so that I can also do custom engravings, plus batching out cribbage, tic tac toe, and other small products.
    Do I need your books now? No, but I am giving back to you for giving so much to all of us.

  13. Thanks for the video David! I have been thinking about bread board ends as another stylized, point of differentiation. This let me know I wasn’t crazy haha. I will definitely be adding something like this to my lineup

  14. Good stuff man! Also, the moving camera shots were on-point. I know you guys put a lot of work into the vids and I wanted to let you know the small things are definitely noticed!

  15. This is my favourite channel. I especially like it when you explain everything so nicely. I wish you a lot of success with the channel and happy life.

  16. When I worked retail, my boss taught me something about making display piles: never let it be a perfect stack. You always make a nice stack of boxes, squares up and everything…then you take one out of the corner and put it on top. People don’t like breaking that perfect cube of a stack

    I bet your mom wouldn’t break the cube (that sounds like an insult but isn’t meant to be)

  17. Awesome vid as always. I own 2/3 of those books. Must own 3/3 lol. Out of curiosity what do you use for your video recording equipment? Specifically your camera and microphone? You always produce such high quality and engaging videos. I know most of it is just talent and experience but I’m looking to start making some guitar building, modifying, repairing and setup videos and need a camera and mic setup better than my iPhone but without being several thousand dollars to start lol

  18. Holy crap, how have I never thought about using the miter gauge backward like that?!?! Genius!

  19. Just ordered your book. I know a lot about making them but I will flip through it . Maybe I will learn something I did not know. Love all the hard work you do . Your worth supporting 👍

  20. Hello David, fellow Ohioan beginner woodworker here (Medina oh). I just discovered your channel after starting listening to the Making It podcast (from the first one of course), I am now on #039, so roughly 300+ to go. I love your style, projects, explanations. Keep up the good work. Cheers.
