Hello LJ’s, hope all had a wonderful holiday season and are enjoying the snow free days thus far. Today post is a couple of sushi serving boards for a client to view here soon hopping to get to make a run for his business. These are made with the help of the Incra’s super system for the snug fit of the dovetail splines and accent pieces. The woods are Tiger Maple, B.E. Maple and Black Walnut , finish of with Watco’s Butcher Block Oil. Thanks for viewing and a Happy New Years to all….Blkcherry

Hi Blkcherry,

I love these boards, as I’m sure your client will as well.

I do have a question, as I’m new to this, or I should say inexperienced. I noticed in the first picture that the butterflies doen’t actually connect. Are they more display than functional, or is there simply a lot more that I have to learn?

Hey Wilson. The holidays were great thanks. Perhaps too great in terms of eating. I feel as if I have visited more restaurants the past two weeks than in the past two years! Speaking of eating, these are wonderful sushi boards. As always, your birdseye maple is gorgeous and it contrasts so well with the walnut. This is a great use of the Incra system. It sure is a remarkable tool to use and the dovetails are so clean and crisp. Is the foot a sliding dovetail that runs the width of the board? Great work!

Same question as airfieldman… are the butterflies decorative only, or functional? Nice work!

Airfieldman, when making this style board I router the dovetail void before I glue the lenghts together adding the long accent piece in this case the 1/8” strip of blk.walnut. Next I cut a length of dovetail to slide into the dovetail void and glue in on each side. The over all illision is a bow tie apperance which is in two parts, hope this answer your question. It purely a accent design…BC

Hey Lenny thanks for viewing and I know what you mean by the over indulgence of the holiday season. I been going to the gym to try and counter act the festive intake. The super system is a great tool in my shop and has so many uses, its by far one of my fav. over the years. Oh yes the foot is a sliding dove tail, if in the future you decide to use this method with the supersystem clean out most of the joint using the TS and then use the dovetail bit to make the profile. So let say you are using a 1/2 dove tail, clear out 1/4” of the profile with the table saw, this reduces the chance of tear out and make a nice crisp profile cut…thanks for viewing Wilson

Wilson,
Oh, you gotta like these…..especially the one with the curly and BE maple alternating strips.
The bowties are a nice touch, too and they do look functional. I like the sliding dovetail feet, as well

Wow, these are fantastic Sushi boards Wilson….... love that birdseye and the elegant touch of the “bow tie”, functional or not, it a perfect touch!
