Well, I made some skitching boards to haul up to Chicago for the holidays. The weather cooperated, the family members did not. My sister had this crazy idea of using it as a center piece/cutting board. The nerve….
I really thought it would be fun to ride these down the Eisenhower Expressway behind an 18-wheeler but my enthusiasm wasn’t shared by the others.
Anyway, these are some of the 16 boards I made from mesquite and maple. The picture with my shoe is made of mesquite and pecan that a very nice couple let me mill from their orchard. So in return, they get a cutting, um, I mean skitching board. There’s also an end grain cutting board in there. Can you guess which one?
Now my family doesn’t think I’m so crazy for getting the crazy idea of building a sawmill.
One of these days I swear I will find the time to build some actual furniture.
