Hello LJ’s hope this posting find all in the best of heath. The shop need a good cleaning, all work surface need to be clean up a bit from all the high humidity day the area has endured. The scrap bins also needed to be reduce from previous projects. So I took a look in my favorite folder here on LJ’s and came up with this gem by LJ PebbleCreek. The tapered sides and sliding dove tail end made for a nice design detail to the cheese board appearance. The various timbers used were walnut, cherry,and bird eye maple. I used my v drum sander to get the boards as flat as possible and then used hand tools from card scraper and hand planes to strike up the grain before finishing with Watco’s butcher block oil. Over all I really happy with these boards and I hope that this design by PebbleCreek makes your favroite folder as well and as always thanks for viewing…BC

Nice Blackcherry , they all look good but I like the middle one best. Very cool.

SPalm had some good info on one he did. How to install the slicer and where to get it. Don’t know if you saw it when he posted. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/23762

Very nice. That dovetail really adds a nice touch to a simple but beautiful design.

Well done,
Steve

O-o-o-o-o, breadboard dovetailed ends. Nice! My favorite is the last one, with walnut edges. Very nicely done.

The dovetail detail is definitely a great touch!

These are real beauties, and as always, an excellent use for scraps.

I like that you left the holes out of the end, at least, for my tastes.

No problem.

I figured I went searching for it and found it, so I thought I’d save everybody else the trouble of doing the same thing.

Again, nice work!

Over all a 9 …. nearly a 10 but there is no purple heart… that looses you a point… lol
I do like the dovetail feature… I have just made a jig to cut sliding dovetails on the TWC… real quick and real safe.

Some nice looking cheese boards. A great set.

You must eat a lot of cheese at your place.

Great boards! My wife has asked me to make a couple of new cutting boards for her and I love that dovetail at the end. What setup did you use to make the end cut? Some kind of jig, tall fence? New to this whole WW thing and would love to know how you did it.
Thanks for showing your work.

Hey Dusty, I used Watco’s Butcher Block Oil and just wipe on with “cheese cloth” for cheese board…lol

Hello Karson, were just one hr. from the cheese mecca of the world Wisconsin.

Larry, sorry no Purple Heart in the bin these day, just hated when i lose a point…lol

Jon Edmonds, I’ll try and blog the dovetail procedure but I must let you know I have a Incra fence which makes child play on dovetails…

cwdance1 most of the thin stock and end board came out of the bin, the cherry was mill from my stock…
