I recently came into a BUNCH of cherry and was looking for something to try it out on. This was a request from my wife who is constantly baking and making bread. This is only second project and it involved a lot of trial and error…mostly ERROR. Finished in mineral oil and wife is stoked and ready to put it to use :)

Thanks for looking!

Nice – I keep meaning to try making one of these. How did you thin it out on the end?

I’ve got one of these on my to-do list as well, albeit, a ways down the list.

Nice big size!

Did you use a belt sander to taper the edge?

I did use a belt sander…..and a lot of time :) That was one of the things I learned, I glued up the board with 4/4 cherry, next time will go touch thinner and try to taper pieces beforehand then glue up.
