So this looks like just any other board. It’s a long grain board—- not too hard to make. For me though – it’s a breakthrough. This is the very first project that is 100% complete that I’ve done since my accident. I did all the leveling with hand planes and the finger cutout was done with chisels.
The finger cutout is square and I could not figure out how to make the corner – rounded with hand tools.
Finished with General’s salad bowl finish – three coats with 400 grit sanding between coats.
Hopefully my brother and sister-in-law will like it.
Anyway – this is my first project and I’m looking forward to posting a whole lot more since I’m doing better.
Thanks for looking.
