Cheeseboard No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture

This cheeseboard was made from discarded cutoffs from a water ski company. Some of the scraps had been laminated together into strips before I got them – and that determined the pattern. I added the outside Philippine Mahogany pieces, cut and re-glued the strips, and made the board. It’s about 8” square and 2” thick. The arcs were cut on a table-mounted router using a long pivot arm. The board is finished with several coats of Walnut Oil.

Really really nice. I too like the arc, the curves and the way you indented for the handles. Beautiful work.
