This is a cutting board I made for my Girlfriends brother in law. He is starting up his company selling his NC BBQ Sauce (http://www.squirrlsauce.com) (His nickname Squirrl, it’s not actually made of squirrel’s ;) )
I kind of combined gifts here.. It is a house warming present with his company logo embedded into it.
The woods are Yellow Heart, Rock Maple, and Jatoba. If you look closely, there are 1/8 inch strips of yellow heart on either side of the rock maple strips for an extra touch.
Copied the handle idea from Marc Spagnuolo at the Wood Whisperer. (Please forgive the router burn under the handles :( )
The emblem was engraved, or printed, however they do it at the local awards shop. I gave him the file and asked for it to be centered on a silver or bronze 3 inch disc. Took a day to get back, used a 3 inch forstner bit to create a recess and glued it in place.
Finish is in progress, 50% mineral spirits and 50% salad bowl finish.
Thanks for looking :)
