Been a while since I posted, but I wanted to show off a few of the latest round of LCDT’s (Legless Cheese Death Tables). Old joke by now, but still worth mentioning. Nyuk nyuk.
So, I wanted to try something different with the overall shape and handle configuration. For the opposing sloped corners, I used my 4” dust port as a template. Eased all of the edges to take off the sharp corners. Set up a few stop blocks on the router table to offset the recessed handles.
Spent a lot of time at the end of the summer creating thin strips of all species. They always come in handy. I stock piled a few hundred strips and incorporated a few into these boards. Also put in a few strips of walnut and maple veneer into a few. Walnut, cherry, maple, curly maple, padauk, bloodwood, purple heart, and sapele. Finished with the 50/50 salad bowl finish mineral spirits mix. I’m really itching to try out the beeswax mineral oil next.
The numbering in the photos, I used for my personal blog so that folks could claim/purchase them. Posted 10 and sold them all within 3 hours. First time they ever sold that quick.
Anyways, I’m happy to answer any questions. I hope these inspire.
