This an old project that I never loaded on LJ’s. I made it before I was on Lumberjocks and maybe before Al Gore invented the internet!!! It has a lot of miles on it!!
It is a curved cutting board to match the shape of the Ulu knife we bought in Alaska and has storage for the knife. It is not the best knife. It is a souvenir type with a fake antler handle, but it cuts pretty good if I keep sharpening it. I made this board before I had a good band saw or a spindle sander. I laid out the curve and fed it through the table saw with the blade at varying heights to rough our the shape. Then I finished with with a belt sander using the knife for the radius gauge.
It is made of maple and walnut and finished with Behandla salad bowl finish. It has been washed a lot and I’m surprised it is still together. This was made before Titebond III was out. Maybe if it breaks, I can add a touch of Degoose to the next one!!
