Cutting board for my wife’s birthday kids choose the wood from scrap (mahogany, alder, walnut) and told me how they wanted it arranged. I jointed they helped glue… then I built a 13” thickness sander for the shopsmith and we sanded smooth… Kids oiled (about 10 coats :) ) not bad considering is was designed by a 6, 5, and 3 year-old!

Kids have a different way of looking at things, they have not been corrupted by what can not be done. Looks great.

Nothing says I love you mommy than something made by our kids, which is why many of us at one time or another have decorated our refrigerator with things that are… not of museum quality. Happy birthday and congratulations. Also welcome to this family You’re going to like it here.

I’ve seen several plans for the thickness sander for the Shopsmith, how did you do yours?

It is basicly a adjustible table that wraps around the bars and a plastic rod covered in sand paper on the lathe very simple…
