I had shut down my shop for the winter, I finally got out there a week or so ago, and glued up a few cutting boards. My family is doing the cancer walk in a month or so, and though I won’t be able to join them for the walk because of work, I can help out wtih fundraising for a silent auction in a couple of weeks.

I made a router sled to smooth out one of the blanks, as it would not have made it safely though the planer.

Nice looking boards and butcher blocks. Your router jig does a really nice job smoothing things out.

Sweet. My wife has been after me for the last few months to make her a couple. Every so often I catch her browsing around here for project ideas :)

Thanks all.

D1st, 2nd photo above (in the uploaded ones) very crude, just a 3/4” hunk of plywood with a hole drilled through it (plus mounting holes). If i were to do it again, 1/2” ply with a pair of ribs to keep it from flexing.
