Cutting was born in Lyme, New Hampshire, on September 13, 1839. He came to Worcester in 1863, where he worked for Russ & Eddy, a manufacturer of millwork. He studied architecture in the evenings, and established himself as an architect in 1868. By 1876 he and John E. Holman (died 1879), who had been a draftsman with E. Boyden & Son, had established a firm together. This lasted until 1878, when Holman opened his own office. Cutting worked alone again until 1890, when he partnered with Walter R. Forbush, who had recently moved to Worcester from Cincinnati.That firm only lasted the year, and they were working separately by 1891. He was again alone until 1895, when he decided to take an extended vacation to California, for his decaying health. At that time he made Elbridge S. Carleton and Frank H. Cutting, his son, members of Cutting, Carleton & Cutting. This firm survived until 1932, even without the elder Cutting.He died February 6, 1896, while in Los Angeles.
