Made this gnocchi board for the wife for Christmas. She loves gnocchi and I almost bought her one off amazon. But I figured I could make it in an afternoon. Just some tablesaw and bandsaw work. Made out of white oak. Only put one coat of finish (mineral oil) on it as needs to covered in flour most of the time. It works quite well. Watching her make it reminded me of the scene from the godfather.

That’s really neat!

Did you tilt the blade in order to make the “V”’s?

Nice build, Buck! Thanks for linking to my article. Since the original project, I have also been incorporating the pasta grooves in a 3- 4” strip down one side of large cutting boards. That works out well because it gives you good work surface to flatten and cut the dough, and a large surface for forming the dough balls. On one Christmas party we had 5 of us simultaneously making cavatelli on one board. A bit crowded, but fun!
