I made this for my mother (she gets all my experimental projects) quite a few years ago. If you look close you’ll see the Limbert coffee table (my latest project) in one of the pictures. The close up was take of the back of the cutting board (bad side down). This design was taken from an Incra web site designed by from W o o d t u r n e r P R O, I’m not sure if its still up on their web site. If you can’t find it, just send me a personal message and I’ll send you a copy. The instructions are pretty straight forward but you’ll need to make a couple of jig’s, I can help you with that if need be. I only went to the second generation. I used Bloodwood, Bubinga & White Oak. This was one of my very first projects & I really did not have alot of tools at that time. I think I had a jointer and a tablesaw….this project involved ALOT of hand sanding!!!

Outstanding… having made a few of these I know how hard it is to line every thing up…a fair job you have done…very tribal I think…

wow Lori, this is very nice, especially if it is a “first” project. I’m betting your Mom is quite proud to have it. The Limbert table is very nice too.

Wow! I can’t believe this is your first project. Hat’s off! Were you a master craftperson in your prior life? Or maybe a zen buddhist monk? :-) Amazing job!

Very nice, Lori. I’m wondering what you mean “the bad side down?” Looks good to me. And… how about a photo of that Limbert table?
found it in your Projects. You have a beautiful shop, and year-round good weather to use it!

Okay young lady, not only did you make a beautiful 2nd generation board but for the life of me I can’t find a break in the grain, let alone a glue line, on your frame. Did you inlay it? Now you’re just showing off!!!!
Simply great Lori!
