My wife and I enjoy sailing our boat on the Chesapeake Bay. The onboard galley is always a little “cramped.” We really needed some additional counter space. I made a mock-up in foamboard of this cutting board that is designed to cover one side of the two basin sink. I then made a sample from scrap plywood, just to check for size and the cut-out for the faucet. The final version is oak and mahogany that I glued with Titebond II. I ran the assembly through the planer, cut to final size, and made the cut-out for the faucet. I used a 3/16” roundover bit on all the edges. I sanded up through 220 grit paper, using a mini drum sander in a drill to get to the concave corner. Three coats of Howard Butcher Block Conditioner and we had additional counter space that does double-duty for serving snack as well.
