Got a request from my mom & pop to help them with some Christmas gifts this year. She found something similar to these online, but the company charges $60/piece + shipping, yikes! I went to the local Rockler and picked up some maple that was o. Sale, and was able to make a batch of 10 boards for right around $60 in materials, which made mum happy.
There was 10 total, but the first ones I finished needed to be mailed ASAP and I forgot to take pics of them. I ended up making a template out of 1/4” ply, and using it to trace up the handle so it was the exact same on each. Size is 10” x16” for each, and they are finished with Butcher block conditioner, 2 coats of walnut oil, and a top coat of beeswax paste.
Thanks for looking, comments/questions/suggestions welcome!
