I got a Grizzly G0458 Drum sander with the intent of making (end grain) cutting boards….
Besides putting my drum sander to use….
There were forces at work that compelled me to complete this board.
First off, my good buddy Eddie has the same drum sander and as of yet had not made a cutting board.
There began the challenge, as to who would draw first saw dust!!!
Another driving force was/is “The Chairman of the Board”, aka JL7 otherwise known as my good buddy Jeff.
I’m sure y’all have seen his AMAZING work!!! Now then, there is no way that this board even comes close to his level of craftsmanship. As much as I am inspired by his masterpieces…. Jeff personally provided additional motivation!!!
As the title states…. This is my first attempt at a cutting board. Perfect by NO means, but many a lesson learned.
Made of Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry) and re-purposed Maple flooring, with the usual mineral oil soaking.
(Opps, EDIT: roughly 11” X 15” X 1.5”)
I wanted a unique look….
I also didn’t want rubber feet attached with screws….
So to that end, I ended up with what you see. I also used re-purposed wine corks for the integrated feet.
I wanted a unique board…. Think I may have accomplished that.
Now that this board is done…. I wonder what Jeff has up his sleeve!!!
