I would consider this my first “real” project. Made entirely from hardwood and of my own design. The basic idea is a cutting board & top cover that will corral the mess that inevitably grows in front of my toaster oven.

This is the first project I made with my new table saw and dado blade set, assuming you don’t count the crosscut and dado sleds I made the day the saw arrived. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. The top cover is made from ash, bubinga and purple heart. The base is made from walnut, ash, purple heart and bubinga. Finished with a few soakings of mineral oil and a bit of salad bowl wax.
