I’m getting ready for our first show in March and I’m sure the public is tired of looking at the same old stuff so I reconfigured some cheese slicing boards. I did make these 12” and 13” long but they are all 5 1/4’ to 5 1/2” wide and the thickness varies from 5/8” up to 13/16”.
The reason for such a variance is the glue up and what it took to get them to a nice surface front and back. I should mention that the horizontal lines are the remnants from bowl glue ups. I just couldn’t stand to throw them away so I made more work than necessary to make a slicer.
Hope you enjoy, just something a little different

Just in time. I have been wanting to do these since you told me about them last year. After waiting almost a month for the hardware back-order the hardware came today. I really like this project and can only hope I have the success you have had with them. Thanks for posting.

Nice, very nice. I like the various color patterns, these should sell easily.

Fantastic. If you’re gonna cut the cheese, you might as well do it with class..

These are really nice, very fresh and original.

Thanks Jerry, I’ve sold a couple hundred of them sine I started making them a couple years ago.
