My kids’ school recently had a fundraiser and I volunteered to make a few cutting boards. The chair asked for 3 boards to be auctioned off as one item. So, I chose the Woodsmith plan and made these out of cherry and walnut. They were fun to make, but took a lot longer than I anticipated. I’m sure the next batch will be easier.
The other boards shown were while I was in “cutting board mode”. All pretty simple. Here are a few more pictures:
This is some pretty cool quater sawn red oak. Nice flaking, but it doesn’t show too well in this picture.
This was some left-over maple that I just free handed on the bandsaw. The “dots” are just different size dowels of cherry and walnut.
These next two boards are from a batch of maple that was infested with powder post beetles. They had holes everywhere. I wondered if I could still use them for a cutting board….we’ll see. The holes are filled with either epoxy or CA glue. And yes, the beetles are all gone!
Thanks for looking.
