Here are a few more Legless Vegetable Death Tables (Cutting Boards). I started making these for friends and coworkers after their interest’s peaked following my Christmas batch.
The first photo is of a pair of Maple, Walnut, Bloodwood twins finished with the 50% Salad Bowl Finish and 50% Mineral Spirits (x3 coats).
The second photo is a close-up of the grain patterns. This was my first time working with Bloodwood and I was really pleased with how well it machined and finished.
The third photo was of a pre-finish Maple, Cherry, Walnut board. I cut this board thick as an experiment. I was really happy with the result. It is a very hefty board and the chunky feel added to the beauty.
After I crank out some oak bookshelves for the wife (Project Manager/Accountant) I’m planning on creating another zig-zag board. If I can stay patient enough to take photos along the way, I’ll post a blog on the how-to of this cool pattern. I’ve had a few folks ask how they are done.
Thanks for looking.
