I set out this spring to make a cutting a cutting board as a wedding present for my niece, but wasn’t able to finish it in time because of a shop accident [LJ blog link]. After the bandages came off I went back to work on it but I’ve never really been happy with it and eventually stopped work altogether.
But, even though the first piece has too many mistakes in it to go out the door with my name on it, a promise is a promise.
So, as I’ll talk more about in the next entry, I’ve started work on a new board. I’ve decided to blog about it to talk about the lessons I’ve learned along the way, as a tutorial to accompany Marc’s excellent video (from his site: part 1 and part 2) and as something I can point her to so she knows I haven’t forgotten.
Because it’s aimed at such a diverse audience, parts of it may seem a bit odd, so bear with me. I invite my fellow Jocks to chime in with advice and commentary on the various steps.
