After a quick rehab of my craigslist purchases (tablesaw, bandsaw, and planer), I dove in at the last minute to get some Christmas projects done.
Both my dad and brother are really in to cooking, so they got a couple of wood whisperer cutting boards in maple and walnut. The hardwood dealer didn’t have any 8/4 walnut, so I doubled up on the glue ups. Finished with a couple of coats of mineral oil, and a final coat of mineral oil/ beeswax mix.
After flattening the boards using a router sled, I now know why drum sanders are so expensive. (Because they’re worth it!)
I also made some cheese slicers and learned about the limits of curved inlay. They were all supposed to get the cherry inlay, but the first set I made had some extreme curves. Finished with General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish
Thanks for looking!
