A few more Legless Vegetable Death Tables (LVDTs). Just playing around with some repeatable patterns with the last of my bloodwood pile. I was asked numerous times in the past few weeks whether or not I could make some smaller LVDTs for sacrificing helpless blocks of cheese. Poor little Brie wedges. People are just cruel.
Photos #1 and #2 are a pair of cheese bricks made from walnut, cherry and bloodwood. 1.5” thick and smooth as granite.
Photos #3 and #4 are of the same board. Walnut, cherry and maple. Recessed handles on all 4 sides. Gives it an interesting look. Very sushi-board like.
Photos #5 and #6 are of a board that I call “backbone”. It looks very spinal. My one friend said it made him want to eat a rack of baby back ribs. Any cutting board that inspires you to eat is OK in my opinion. Made from bloodwood, walnut, maple and cherry.
All boards sanded to 300 grit before 50/50 salad bowl finish/mineral spirits. #0000 steel wool buffing in between all 4 coats. Final result is a ridiculously smooth end product.
Anyways, I hope these inspire. Thank you for looking. Questions always welcome.
