Never one to let the moss grow beneath my feet and un-dauntingly ambitious I started my next project tonight.
I owe my wife big time for being 1) Amazing! 2) being very encouraging throughout the venture into woodworking. 3) oh and putting up with me for the 8 years I spent in an alcoholic stupor.
She is going to culinary school right now to become a pastry chef.
Our first project was a decorative cutting board we gave her for Mother’s Day.
The next day she mentioned she would like a really big wood cutting board like the ones she has at school. Hey I can take a hint! But I thought we should make one more cutting board. So we made a bigger Maple cutting board for my mom as a belated mother’s day gift. It came out amazinglyer than I ever could have imagined. Too bad i didn’t get a picture of it before we gave it to her.
Now I feel like we are ready to take a stab at the BIG BOARD. A 16”x24” end grain tumbling box cutting board. Today I purchased 5 bd ft of Purple Heart & 4 bd ft of Maple to go with the 4 bd ft of Cherry I had on hand.
So now it is in process.
First step has been to create thick enough stock to make 1.25”x1.25” blocks.
-- I wouldn't be so arrogant if you weren't such a moron!
