I went down to my shop this morning with the intent of doing something totally different then what ended up happening. There is a show coming up so I need to make some inventory. I have been meaning to replace the cutter heads in my Delta 12.5” thickness planer but have procrastinated because I was under the impression it was difficult. Luckily the design on this unit is great and it didn’t take more than 15 mins. With that completed I had to test it and wow what a difference ! So change of plans it ended up being cutting board day!
Made from maple & walnut and a little oak edge on the larger one. I had glue these on as sacrificial pieces so I could run the final glue up the the thickness planer (end grain, doing this avoids the tear out). Its quarter saw oak and I liked the look so left them on. Small all maple is 13.5×10, the one without the oak edge is 15×12 and the larger 16.5×12, all 1.25 thick.
