This is my second commissioned project, and was obviously a much bigger project! It is funny how it grew and grew. I made one for my wife who showed it of a few months ago and a neighbor showed up with an order for 10. She was so happy with the results on delivery she ordered one more!
Along the way one of my bosses got married so I made one for her too. A friend of mine works with a flooring company and has had his eye out for scrap for some time, so I made one for him… That plus one for Mom, and Mom-in-law makes 16 including the original!
I plan to post the last two patters I have pictures of in another post along with some details of the finger grooves along the sides. Instead of a half moon or the like for a finger grip, I centered a cove bit along the edge. My thinking is that you could always knock the feet off the bottom allowing you to turn the board over if needed.
made a simple surfacing jig and purchased the largest router bit I could find… helped reduce the sanding to a more manageable level. Woods include Walnut, Jatoba, Cherry, Purpleheart, Bubinga, maple, and sepele.
