October, 2011—A couple weeks ago I found a well-used kitchen cutting board in a second-hand store. Bought it for $1.99. Cut off the drip/drain edges. Ran the flat parts through the thickness planer, to get the knife marks off both sides. Then cut it into 3 strips, and each strip into two halves. Stacked up and glued all 6 pieces to make a blank.
My talented and artistic daughter drew an interesting design on the face. All I had to do was cut it out, build it, and put a nice finish on. The finish is a clear water-based semi-gloss product for wood from Rust-o-leum, 3-coats. The drawer handles are small pieces of marblewood. All cuts were made with the band saw, equipped with a 3/16ths 10-TPI blade. The last photo includes a wine bottle for scale.
