This baguette board was made from Camphor Laurel, Purple Heart and Tasmanian Black wood.. I made extra strips for the” “Next Step””: project so not to waste them I laminated them and then cut through the board at 30 degrees 8 times [there by giving me 7 strips] and then just offsetting each piecea little, glued it back together and squared off the sides.. Used the Patron Jig to round the ends and drilled a 1 inch hole at the endand chamfered all the edges.
Lenght : 14”
Width : 5 ”
Thickness : 3/4 ”
Finish : Parrafin Oil.

baguette : n, a skinny loaf of bread , eaten with the bag .

David a great description of a baguette. I almost picked up one yesterday but settled for French bread. I wonder if his board could be used for French Bread.

Larry A great looking board.

You made a very attractive bread board. The cross-cuts really make it unique. Got me wondering what might happen if you had cut each of your eight cuts at a different angle, before shifting the slices for the offset. Might be something for me to try if I can find time to make one of these.
