Well it’s been on my list for a while to try one of these out. The boards are 9”X25” rock maple and mahogany.
Picture shows them after first coat of oil. They are for a wedding gift next week.
I was able to try my new Delta drum sander out. I’ve heard mixed reviews but decided to take the chance. I took light passes and never had a problem.

Thanks for looking

I like it and it looks really good. I assume that it’s fairly difficult to make one of these. I’ve never gotten into the ‘cutting board’ thing so I haven’t paid much attention to the techniques. These look good though. Nice work.

I’m a little drunk at the moment, so they just look like normal boards to me. : )
Well done !

Great looking boards, you have a good drunken wave on them.

The Delta sander should be great I have a Performax (Jet)
sander and use it all the time. It really helps when your
making the drunken boards.

really enjoyed the Delta. Interested in using it on an end grain board
