Some people love pig-shaped cutting boards. I was inspired by CueballRosendaul’s project Set of Little Piggy Cutting Boards for Etsy Store

This board is about 16 inches long and 11 inches high. The material for this board was cut from a reclaimed rock maple table top. No jointing or glue up. Just design a pig, cut it out on the band saw and sand ‘er smooth. It is finished with Howard Butcher Block Conditioner which consists of mineral oil, beeswax and carnauba wax.

Have a wonderful September day Lumberjocks.

Reminds me of the first project I made in Jr. High shop class. My mother kept it another 50+ years and it never saw a knife. It passed with her.

Nice board. greg48 echoes my experience that it was my first ever woodworking project. See you in Chartucky at the bench.

Thanks lumberjocks.

If someone were going to use this piggy as an ornament rather than a cutting board this board would be a good choice since it stands on its own two feet I think it would work nicely on the fireplace mantle or as a hefty coffee table knickknack.

wiser1934,

I did not cut it with the router. This is only the fourth cutting board I’ve made(all this week). I made the pattern to allow most of the band saw’s machining marks to be cleaned up with the spindle sander. I only needed to work the ears and mouth by hand. If I were going to make these in short production runs I would definitely do most of it with the router.

Have your say...
