So I finally jumped on the band wagon and built a cutting board. It was really fun. I got to use my new rigid 13 inch planer and my new rigid 6 1/8 inch jointer. (I’ll probably do a review later on those…)
Its all hard maple and made into identically sized squares but I think it looks cool. I did take care to rotate each blank during the assembly to get an alternating grain pattern kinda giving it a checker board effect. The handles were routed out using a 1/2 inch straight bit and guide fences.
Finished with GF Salad Bowl Finish.
I gave the cutting board to my Mother in Law for her birthday and she loved it! Those brownie points will come in handy some day I’m sure…
