I want to thank SPalm and Mary Anne for the inspiration to make these cheese slicers. They are very fun and easy to make. I made the mistake of not taking pictures of others that I made as Christmas gifts. The first picture is of four that I just finished. The second picture is a shot of one that I made for a Lakers fan out of Purpleheart and Yellowheart. The next picture is Walnut and Curly Maple. The last picture is one out of Padauk and Yellowheart. I finished all of the cheese slicers with mineral oil. I made a jig to hold them square while I drill them on my drill press. I also made a sled for my table saw that holds the board at the correct angle for the groove across the board.

Very nicely done. Did you use a thin kerf blade to make the groove? What are the sizes of the boards? One of these days I hope to make some of them.

Paul…I used a regular blade for the groove. You need at least 1/8” groove for the wire to work properly. The boards are 5.75” x 10”.

I know this is a little while after the post, but I was wondering where you got the hardware to make these? They are a great idea that would be a fun “between projects” project.

I found the answer, someone else made some like these, and had the same question…

Have your say...
