Here are a few of my latest additions. Nothing particularly original but nice additions to the inventory. The latest 3D board from MTM. An inlay board and some pig shaped template boards. The last photo I rotated before I saved it, but it went back when I posted so please don’t hate on me. The large board is finished with salad bowl finish, finger grooves and deluxe feet. The inlay boards are very fun, hopefully people like them. I always have a variety of various shaped template boards. I saw the success people had with the pigs and added a few. All my template boards are basically scrap wood or shorts projects, no feet, mineral oil and beeswax finish. These are my low priced higher volume boards.

Nice work Jim!

The pigs are excellent, I can see why they are popular. Do you spend any inordinate amount of time sanding all the edges or do you have a trick?

The 3D board looks great. Should sell well. How many did you make?

For rounded edges I use my ROS with 500 grit set to slowest speed. That gives me some umph but it doesn’t distort the routered edge

Just the one. I’ll purposefully overprice it for Park Ave and see the reaction. It wasn’t nearly as hard to make as the butterfly design so I’ll make another for later in the year and drop the price a bit.

Thanks Jim, I should have said “sides”. I always fear the work involved in places like the corners of the “feet”. I have OCD when it comes to sanding and removing all the saw marks 8^)

Beautiful boards, do you raise the end grain with water before your final sanding?

I’ll be honest. With boards like these, they are a low dollar, high volume board. If there are some burn marks from the router bit, I will hit it quickly with 220 on the ROS or the oscillating sander in an attempt to remove the burn mark without distorting the shape. However since these things sell for <$40, I don’t and won’t spend a ton of time looking for perfection. With the premium quality, premioum priced boards I will sand very carefully to get rid of any saw blade or burn marks.

I do wipe with a damp rag before I hit it with fine sandpaper if that answers your question.

I think I’d get dizzy putting together the 3D board, but I’d sure like to try. All of them are great – I could see the pigs being a great seller. Fantastic job.
