Butcher Block Cutting Board
1 1/2 inch thick Maple
29 inches long
17 inches wide

Extra large size to accomodate preparing rib slabs or brisket for smoking. Made this for a
close friend …. hence, “Friends are the flowers in the garden of life”

Board has a carved rose in each upper corner, a relief well on each end of board to capture &
keep vegetables from rolling off, and center cutting section is fluted.

Beautifull board! The extra touches ( roses,saying,etc…) are what will make this an extra special gift.

Keep it up.

I like to barbque almost as much as woodworking, but I don’t think I could throw a slab of meat on this board….very nice!!

Nice details! But that sure looks like oak to me. I hope it’s white oak because that is closed grained

What type of machine did you use for the carving?

I am using a RoMaxx CNC built by Ron Rogers in Redford Michigan. Ron builds a quality machine and provides
excellent technical service. I am also using Aspire software from Vectric … very flexible CAD 3D drawing with CAM machine G code. CNC runs off Mach 3 control software.
You can find Ron’s website at RomaxxCNC.com ….

Ray, you’re getting very good with that Romaxx. I agree, wonderful machines. My HS-1, although I don’t get to spend the hours on it that I would like, is a wonderful tool. I use mine for cutting jig parts, some signs, etc. I really like the ability to make an accurate part when I need it. I wish the WD-1 had been out when I purchased mine! Ron has a 50X50 in the works and a 4th axis at some point. Toyed with making my own 4th axis.

Again, those are some fine CNC projects. Keep them coming!
