1152 days ago by degoose | 10 comments »

For some, the end grain board is fairly basic… so just as a little variation I have made another… with bevel rips of 30 degrees and 15 degrees… I have cut some slices on the end of each to show… The outer pieces have bevel rips on one side… at 30 degrees… The Centre piece has rip bevels at 15 degrees… So that means the remaining two pieces have bevels of 15 and 30 degrees… I leave it up to those who choose to make this one, to dec...

You will have seen on the sushi boards, that I have cut two curves on the handles.. If I were just making one board, the cuts could be made freehand on the bandsaw…but… Since this is now part of the range… I need to be able to produce these cuts on a regular and repeatable basis… so once more a jig is needed.. To start, glue the mainboard to the handle/ends… this need not be a great bond… it is to temporarily hold the pieces together while they are cu...

1395 days ago by McLeanVA | 50 comments »

For those of you who asked me for a tutorial on how to make the zig zag legless vegetable death table (cutting board), here is my best shot.

I will outline the process in 10 steps below. I have assumed that when viewing these steps that basic woodworking skills are familiar to you. If you have questions, or run into snag...

Cutting Board: How To's #2: Zig Zag Cutting Board Patterns - Inspirational

1395 days ago by McLeanVA | 22 comments »

I was absolutely overwhelmed by the positive response to my Zig Zag How To blog post yesterday, that I decided to brainstorm some possible combinations (on my lunch break) using the basic steps I outlined yesterday. All of the same techniques and steps apply, and really the only difference is the woods and measurements that make up the original “sticks.” Same rules apply to width = height. Length is up to you. Please experiment with whatever measurements and combinations strike...
