I have made these bread knives, holder and cutting surface for some time but have never been happy with the cuts on the nice finished project from use. I found on internet of a board with triangles glued on, and decided to make a fish shaped hot board, then I thought this would make a good cutting board, then I made a pop on surface for my flat surfaced knife holder. In the future I will just glue the triangles on. I didn’t take a picture how I made the triangle pieces of wood, but I just cut square strips, the took a 2 by 6 and cut a 90 degree slot out of the center, clamped it to the table saw and brought the blade up through the center, a little adjustment to get it right in the center, carefully run the strips through . If it is a little off center just group the different sides together on different glue ups.

Thanks for looking, hope you find this idea interesting, comments are welcome.

I was wondering if the same texture on the board could be made using a molding head cutter on a table saw. This would eliminating the glue-up.

Would like to hear if this would work.

Tyveckboy. Maybe but in my experience in doing these is that the surfaces where quickly sanded by holding them against an edge sand er. Take the bottom sharp corner off and glue on. I used masking tape on the ends to stop glue from going on boards off ends. I used a board and a heavy battery for clamping pressure. If you can solve the sanding issue they could be cut directly. Very fast to just cut the pieces and use up scrap.

If I ever try it, I’ll let you know how it turns out. I have an old Molding Heat cutter set that’s about 40 years old that was sold by Craftsman. I haven’t used it in years. It may be interesting to see how it still works.

Maybe also a v-grooving bit in a router table?
