This was a project that I recently finished. Since I’m new to lumberjocks, I thought I would show this off as my first contribution to the community. I’ve been following lumberjocks for a while, but now with the help of a local woodworking studio, I can be a true participant.
The cutting board was made out of hard maple and glued up in strips. The project was put together as a regular rectangular cutting board. I cut out the cloud shape from that and with the remaining scraps, I made up raindrop coasters/serving plates.
The construction went surprisingly smooth. The part that was difficult was sanding in between the cloud humps where the router couldn’t get to.
After it was sanded down with 120 grit paper, I applied Boos mystery oil and board cream to protect the surface. I loved building these boards, they’re a lot of fun!
