My boss asked me to make him a cutting board out of a chunk of a shuffleboard table he had. Made of laminated maple it was.

I scrubbed the heavy varnish off the top and bottom. Came back with a 5-1/2, 4-1/2, and 1 to flatten and smooth the top. Finished smoothing with a card scraper. The bottom I fjust flattened it. I wasn’t that concerned about getting the scrubs tearout gone.
Trimmed all the edges and wrecked my Forrest ww2 because of unseen nails. Yay!

With a router, I cut a dado all the way around. I started 3/4 from the top and bottom edges and used a 3/8 round over bit with the bearing removed and lost ground down so I could round the inside of the dado over. I smoothed the dado bottom with a router plane.

I turned some 1”w x 1/2” tall walnut feet with a 3/4 tenon. Bored a couple holes and glued them in. I shaved a couple down with a 60-1/2 to level it out.

The fleur-de-lys (flower of life in French or something like that) inlay is made out of African padauk cut with a fret saw. I used a dremel to remove a bulk of the waste out of the cutting board and finished with an 1/8” chisel and fishtail chisel. Glued in with tb3 as I didn’t feel like dragging out the glue pot.

Finished a mixture of beeswax and mineral oil.

thanks fer looking

Good to hear the blade will be replace.

No pics of the dado or walnut feet? What gives?

The fleur-de-lys came out fantastic!
