I recently designed this for my sister who is headed to collage this fall. she wanted a cutting board but doesn’t have much counter space, so I was trying to come up with something that wouldn’t take up much visual space in a small kitchen, be counter top height, and be collapsible so that when she moves and doesn’t need the stand it can be easily stored. I’ve wanted to do something in an Asian/Japanese style for a while so I brought that into this design. The side frames are glued but the front and back stretchers are through tenons held in place with cherry pegs, once removed it only takes a few hard taps to beak the stand down. The cutting board is held in place with 4 dowel pegs. The finish on the cutting board is mineral oil/bee’s wax, the stand is rubbing varnish, 1/3 polly, 1/3 raw Tung oil, 1/3 B. linseed oil

Fantastic, your daughter will love it, well thought out and well executed. It will be passed down through the generations I am sure.
