I’ve been out of the shop for quite a while for a variety of reasons. Recently, I’ve been cleaning, organizing and reworking storage for my tools. Also, I have been doing some restoration work in the Kitchen. Rebuilding cabinets, refinishing and rebuilding doors. One of the chores that needs to be done is to replace the pull-out cutting board.
This is the old one.
It fits into this slot in the counter.
The only real design changes I am planning is to make the board such that is can be pulled out and laid flat on the counter. Also, I am upgrading materials (hard maple and cherry) and will add a few curves.
Very little in the way of Galoot points today.
The next step is to hand plane the cherry to match the maple in thickness and glue up the panel. (I was too lazy to pull out the planer and set it up. Jointed face, edge, ripped to width and will finish with a hand plane.)
