Just a silly reference to where it all started.. cutting boards… and yes they are addictive … as is this site…
This is fairly simple design using Silver Ash and Tasmanian Blackwood… Cut the ends on a bandsaw using a curve cutting jig on the circle cutting jig…
Rounded over all edges with a 1/2 inch roundover bit.. and then a couple of coats of mineral oil to bring out the colour and grain. Sometimes things don’t need to be overcomplicated.
Length is 18 inches width is 12 inches and it is 3/4 inches thick…
Hope you like it…

Nice looking board Larry. You know I haven’t lost anymore fingers since you changed your logo “to drink twice….......and don’t bother to cut… I had it back asswards. No wonder I was lopping off body parts. Thanks for the good advice. Beautiful looking board. mike

As always…........ very nice board!

Funny you stated about thing not needing to be overcomplicated – just as I’m in the middle of a board that contains 192 individual pieces! ;-)

Cheers Larry – have a 4X for me!

“Back to your roots”? Larry my friend, if you’re like me, those roots are gray! ;)

Great looking board. Of course, we expect nothing less from you…
