A recent episode of Rough Cut with Tommy Mac featured a trio of household items made from left over stock from the cut off bin. One of these projects was a cheese board.
Guess what I’ve been doing?
The board is unique with a cove cut on all 4 sides which is done on the table saw. The final shape is inevitably dubbed “the surf board” here in SoCal.
