Well , sooner or later we all will make a boo boo. : (
While attempting to make a unique board for a friend of mine…I slipped a wee bit with my router and screwed it all up on the final pass… I was in the process of using up my scrap pile and vowed not to cut any fresh wood just for a cutting board. What you see here is a piece of Cherry that was the only correct size POScrap that I had left. Although the grain is going the wrong direction , it was full of figure and gave me a chance to use my DeWalt biscuit joiner and also see how clean of a joint I could make…..lucked out this time : )
Prior to the addition of the Cherry , the board was Maple with Bubinga accent strips and I had already routed the juice groove into it. The biggest challenge at that point was to seamlessly route the groove into the Cherry as well. Again I lucked out : ) So what do you think …should I trash it and start all over again or present it to the unsuspecting victim as is ? Majority rules , so cast your vote please …I won’t be offended…..thank you : )
-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
