this board, like most of the stuff i do, started from a mistake. I wanted to make a cutting board for my nephew’s new son (he is going to be circumcised, so a cutting board is appropriate, i guess). so, I decided to make a cafe illusion one but glued the strips the wrong orientation, so cafe illusion was out of the question. So, i thought to make it wave like, to remind him of the good times before he had children and used to surf :-)
I made a template from mdf based on sine wave print out and used it to align the glueup and afterward to trim to the template with router with a long flush trim bit.
I like it! timber is heart Rimu and silver beech, finished with paraffin oil (sorry its still a bit oily in the pictures).
EDIT: i bandsawed 2mm from the routing line. I am sure you all know that but just in case.
