Okay this is absolutely, positively the last board. My wife wanted handles so I used some cocobolo drawer pull stock left over from my bathroom vanity and nightstand drawers. I used a mortisepal jig and cut two slots end to end to make a 4” slot for the handle. Close up pictures show all the blemishes, then again it is meant to be used as a cutting board. Two coates of the wood whisperer’s finish formula.
The mortise pal is actually a pretty good tool. I just wish they had made the new version (i.e. 3 1/4” stock capacity) when I bought it. I noticed right off it would be better if they had made a wider jig. Just like with computers, they did after I bought it.
