My wife and daughter-in-law started a handmade lotion business, and I was being drafted to help them run their booth at local craft events. Seeing which way the wind was blowing … I decided to make some cheese boards and cutting boards for sale at those same events. This will be the first time I’ve made anything for sale.
Here are the first few boards. I used everything out of my cut off bin, of course!
Every board is unique. I process enough lumber to make several of these at once, maximizing my efficiencies. I do glue-ups in the evenings, or over my lunch break (I work at home). I only have enough clamps to do 4-5 set-ups at once, so working at a steady pace each week maximizes that efficiency as well.
Boards have a routed space on each end for fingers to slip in and easily pick up the piece. 4 non-slip rubber feet are on each board.
Woods seen here: Purpleheart, Hard Maple, Jatoba, Walnut, Red Oak, African Teak, Yellowheart
Each board is approximately 8” x 10” x 1”, though every board is different. More posts to come!
