After a long time of no shop time I finally was able to put together several short sessions to get this one made. I finally feel like a real LJ!
During school I always doodled, and esp. in math/physics classes I used to play along with the squares in the notebooks. In particular I used to draw this magen-david (star of david) a lot, and after seeing so many cutting boards on LJ, I always wanted to put this concept into a board.
This project didn’t work as easily as planned, and I faced the need to fix and alter the pieces on practically every step of the way, but I think it turned out well. if anyone is interested I can start a blog showing the progress of this board.
I’m glad how it came out, although the process was tedious working with so many small parts. definitely learned a lot of lessons for upcoming projects, and got good practice on each and every step.
The board is made of maple and cherry, both are food safe. Glue used was Gorilla Wood glue which is also FDA approved for food related items. The third pictures is shiny as it was taken just after applying mineral oil on.
For additional pictures of the before-during-after and the build process you can check out the build blog right here.
Thanks for watching,
