I put together a few more cutting boards for Christmas. The Paddle style boards
are for my siblings, made from a 24”x24” cutting board my dad used to use to
cut up homemade pastas. I’ve had to add cherry to the boards to make them large
enough so that each sibling got a portion dad’s board. The dowel
accents are Purpleheart in 3 boards, 1 board has Oak dowel accents (I found the PH
AFTER I had glued in the Oak in one). They’re on the thin side, as dad’s board was
only 3/4” thick, so they will only be an ornamental reminder of our quazi-gourmet father.
The other end grain boards are for the sibling’s also, for every day use. Those boards
were made from Walnut, Cherry, and Hickory.
The smaller, stripey board was made from scraps of other boards that I could not make
myself throw away. It’s a useless size, but my daughter has laid claim to it.
The picture frame was a request by one of my daughter’s friends. It’s made from
Ambrosia Maple, with Jatoba splines in each corner. First time making a frame.
