Old man winter struck Iowa today. 15 inches of snow and very strong winds kept me stranded at home today. My shop is small and I have a limited amount of wood available but I had to do something today so I decided to try my first end gran cutting board. Due to a couple mistakes it ended up a little smaller than I planed but it worked out all right for cheese or a small bread loaf. I did not have any thick stock available so I just made it out of 3/4 inch stock but I did learn some things and the next one I try will be bigger and thicker. Finished size is 5” x 9-1/2” x 3/4”. I also made a small mantle clock and a letter holder which I have made before but it gave me something to do on a snowy day. I think I will make a trip to the wood store and stock up before the next storm hits.
