About the Author
David Picciuto, also known as the Drunken Woodworker, spent 10 years working for marketing agencies, designing and developing websites in Toledo, Ohio. Five years ago, in an effort to have his photography professionally framed for an art show, he was shocked at the cost and decided he could do it himself. David started watching woodworking shows on YouTube and never stopped. He never did make those picture frames but his life was changed. Now, with a YouTube following close to 200K, David is a full-time online content creator, designing, creating and teaching the art of woodworking on his website Make Something.com. Incorporating his art, videography, and photography backgrounds, Make Something teaches the craft of woodworking through information, inspiration, and humor while also providing a community platform for sharing projects and conversing with like-minded makers. David currently lives in Toledo, OH.

This book features 15 detailed designs with step by step instructions to construct each one. There is a cutting board design for just about any style of kitchen. For each of the designs Mr. Piccuito provides detailed photographs and instructions to build the featured cutting board, together with a variety of techniques to lay out, cut, assemble, and finish the boards. Moreover, the techniques he shows in this book can be applied to a wide variety of other woodworking projects, not just cutting boards. He also provides a gallery of 22 photographs submitted by followers of his website and YouTube channel if you need any additional inspiration to get out into the workshop.
Included among the techniques demonstrated in the book: making breadboard ends, making inlays, preserving live edges, working with reclaimed wood, finishing techniques, and methods of smoothing and flattening end grain. About the only thing missing that he might have included would be using a router sled to flatten your cutting board if you don't have a planer, but the internet contains abundant information on that.
If your shop is a bit dingy from disuse, this book should inspire you to get back to the workbench. If you are looking for some Christmas presents to batch out, this is a go-to source, and if you just want to do some armchair woodworking, Mr. Piccuito has concocted the perfect mix of words and pictures to clearly show woodworkers how to make some wonderful designs.
As with his previous book on band saw boxes, Mr. Piccuito's passion for making things pours from the pages of this book, and his enthusiasm is contagious.
