Four more cutting boards … including my first-ever commissioned work.
The first is end grain hard maple, walnut, yellowheart, padauk and cherry.
The second one is tigerwood, hard maple and walnut.
The third is end grain hard maple. 16” diameter, 20 degree cant on the sides.
Finally, the commissioned piece, a replacement in-cabinet bread board. African teak, hard maple, yellowheart and walnut.
The three I still have go to market for the first time this weekend, along with 3 new ones that are being finished tomorrow. The rectangular ones have handholds; all have rubber feet.
1. I continue to debate internally about end grain vs. edge grain … most people seem to prefer edge grain, yet end grain have the well-reported advantages. I’m anxious to see when way my sales will lead my future production.
2. I love the round hard maple boards; this is the 2nd I’ve made. My newest tool, a 14” bandsaw with a 1/2” Woodslicer blade and a Carter circle jig … makes quick and smooth work of this cut.
3. Prices are going up.
More to come!
