My bride and I where in the kitchen a couple of weeks ago and she mentioned “You need to make me a cutting board”..... So I did what any good husband with a shop would do…. I went had fun in the shop….lol
This is my first stab at a cutting board and found it not near as bad as I first thought it may be. It isn’t very big due to I didn’t want to waste much lumber on a “First try” so I just used some scraps I found in the scrap bin. It is made of maple and cherry.
I did come to the realization that I want a drum sander more than ever now…lol. The top and bottom are not near as perfectly even as I would like honestly. I used a straight edge and sanders to get it as even as I could. Not perfect, but nothing noticeable at all. I also learned that maybe only two coats of salad bowl finish would of been better than three. I sanded between each coat, but found the last coat streaked on me some. I just cleaned that up with steel wool.
Not to much to say about this board. I tried it, had fun making it, bride is tickled, and I will make more…. Good fun….
