I have always like the design of these edge grained cutting boards so I jumped in and made 25 of them and they are all sold allready. A mix of Black Walnut, A. Mahogany, Peruvian Walnut, Hard Maple, Padauck, Babinga and White Oak.
My bandsaw took a pernament vacation so I had to use a Jig Saw and do not wish that on anybody well maybe a few. So I got cozy with the jig saw and spindle sander. The sizes range from 8-9 inches wide and 12-14 inches long and 1 inch thick.
I just finished putting on the 2nd coat of mineral oil. Anybody who has made this design before knows now much work goes into each one. My estimate is at least 2 hrs each. There will be some happy cooks out there this X-Mas.
A bandsaw would have saved a lot of time by stacking the handles and cut 5 or so at a time and use the drill press to cut the finger holes out as well. Providing you kept them all exactly the same size which I did not. Next time hopefully it will go smoother… Gotta keep reaching for that dream.. Thanks for looking….
Just added a couple more pics before they go to their forever homes…..
