I’ve seen several people post these after spalm’s original post and they looked like a fun and relatively easy project. These are cherry and walnut and I Really like how they turned out. The arc pattern was done similar to his original, though I thought I’d alternate stripes of alternating equal width that gradually increased going across the board.

This is the first stacked cut where I liked one much better than its inverse. My original plan for shimming underwent several adjustments to account for the stack getting continually shorter. These will make nice giveaways this Christmas.

Very nice boards. Where do you purchase the cutter set up?

Hawaiilad: here is a link to spalm’s post containing the info. Note that the drawing on cheese slicing website contains the wrong dimensions for the slot so I used spalm’s instructions.

Sweet. You nailed it.

These are great gifts. I have several more people wanting them – I have to get busy.

Very nice! I have also made a few of these (from Steve’s instructions) and everyone loves them.

here is a link for the plastic feet for the bottom , so they do not slide on the counter top, I have used the smaller ones for the cheese slicing boards and they work great.

Hey Steve,

Is “SPalm Style” anything like Gangnam Style? If so, when can we expect a video?

I really like this and plan to make some of them in the future.

Can someone please refresh my memory on the slot that is cut for the wire. Didn’t someone develop a small sled to make this particular cut in the boards?

For these I just used a shim and the miter handle on the bandsaw similar to what Spalm put in his picture. Cutting a “double-kerf” with the bandsaw worked, but on one board the blade kept wanting to cut a “V” because it kept slipping into the first cut.

Were I to do it again (and have a bunch to do) I would build a little 5° sled for the table saw. I have a thin kerf blade on it normally.

I use my sled on the table saw, I use a shim at the fence to raise the board about 5 deg. I only raise the blade enough , depending on the thickness of the board.
