That’s exactly what I plan on hearing when my girlfriend’s mom opens this up for Christmas. She’s really big into crafts and things and a while back she sent me a picture of something similar to this but made out of pine, unstained, and obviously wasn’t made by someone who really loves to work with wood. So, in the spirit of this wonderful website, I made this hot glue gun holder but with a cutting board twist. I just have to get a glass tile to put under where the glue will fall. My girlfriend managed to steal her mom’s glue gun so I could make this, otherwise I would have had no idea how big or little to make it.
I just made a short and long cutting board, used a biscuit to join them, hand cut and shaped the slots for the gun (test fitting along the way), sanded, glued, finished, and put some rubber feet on the bottom. I’ve made a few cutting boards which I haven’t posted, but it was really nice to actually put a finish on this instead of just mineral oil.
