Made as a wedding gift for a friend. Measures 17” x 9 1/2” x 1” and was made so one side can be for cutting and the other for serving. Handles are hard to figure out in the photos but they have compound cuts on them and feel and handle well in the hands. Finished with Howards CB oil and buffed real nice. Haven’t posted for a while because I HATE the cold weather and my shop is like a freezer! Thanks for the looks and comments.

this is a beauty, its got it all, not to fancy and not dull at all, the handles are cool, and i wish you had my wood stove and i wish i had a healthier body like yours…but i cant trade…is there anyway for you to put a medium size wood stove in the garage, , well i hope you can, you have to many winters to go still and you could do so much if you had your winters to work in the shop…i hope you can change that and get some heat in there….

I like the dual purpose of this. I get a Superbowl feeling when I look at it cause of its similarity of a field. Also agree the handles are cool looking. Nice work and stay warm.

Classy solution to an issue I keep fighting, how to make the darn thing easy to pick up from a counter.

The end grain joints on the handles are rather tenacious, did you pin them or anything?

splintergroup… pins but I did a little trick I either learned here or another site/mag where you glue the ends and let that dry and then you glue those pieces together. So you are really gluing the glue. <——hope that made sense.

Ahh, it’s called ‘sizing’. Basically you seal the end grain pores with glue so the next application won’t get absorbed so easily.

Have your say...
