...And then there were 2.

This project started as a 3 board setup. 1 regular board, 1 bread cutting board with a drawer to collect crumbs, and one board with grooves that can be used as a trivet.

For loss of concentration the middle board with the drawer fell victim to a router climb cut yanking adventure, and now there are only 2 boards left unless I end up fixing the 2nd board.

made of bowling alley hard maple, and some applewood slices for accent. each board is 12”x12”x1.5” bottoms are chamfered, and handles are grooved ~3” into the boards for convenient holding.

finish is mineral oil.

Sorry about your mishap with the router, but the 2 that escaped undamaged look great.

Nice Board! Nothing like the momentary laps in concentration to get the old adrenaline flowing.

Nice looking boards.
Loss of concentration has a funny way of causing things like that! I am sure you will find some way to save it.

Beautiful job Sharon! I was hoping to see a close-up of the sliding dovetail joint. Was that hard to cut into this hard maple?
