Thanks to sPalm, DeGoose and countless others who share these great ideas and inspire me to continue to learn and grow as a woodworker. I have spent so much time with End Grain that it was fun to not have to sand so much and work on my finishing skills with face grain. It was a completely different animal.

The boards are all made up of Walnut, Jatoba and Rock Maple.

Salad Bowl Finish

I forget who originally made the swiss cheese board but it’s definitely a family favorite in my home.

mmmmmm cheese…

I too like the “Swiss” board. Is there any wood that smells like limburger? Where do you get your hardware?

Nice boards, How is the cutter attached and what is it made of?

Cheeseslicing.com is where I got the supplies. Basically a metal rod, stainless wire and plastic knob with a set screw. The cutter is attached by using a Drill Press to run a 3” deep hole roughly half-way through the depth of the board and a 1/2” from the back edge. 1/4” drill bit worked great. I used my table saw sled to run the groove and notch out the back end to accept the wire smoothly. Some others built fancy jigs and precise angles, I just ran the depth deep enough to allow the wire to lay flat when the slicing mechanism is pressed down, they all work great. Made 10 of them as a trial run and had a lot of fun.
