Made another batch of Cheese slicers a month ago for an Art Market along with some Post Office Door Banks. This Cheese Slicer is made with Wenge, Hard Rock Maple and the dividing strips are Cherry. These, again, are designed after ones that have been posted here on LumberJocks and my last batch. The size is 5 3/4” wide 9 3/4” long and 3/4” thick. The finish is Generals Salad Bowl finish that I cut by 50 percent.

It’s only a cheese slicer. But how did you create such a work of art? Amazing!

Hey Max, a good old classic. And well done too. Love the wood choices.

I will not do any of the old ‘Who cut the cheese’ jokes.

Take care,
Steve

It’s perfectly made and that tiny accent stripe really sets it off ! Great job : )

looks great Max!! How did you do the glue up? Do you have a glue up jig? Or just do a row at a time?Just curious as I’ve tried doing the “dividing strip” thing before for a cutting board with pipe clamps and lets just say I felt like I was playing 52-card pickup. All the pieces just sprang everywhere.

Very abstract pattern, and blended together with just the right wave. A first class wood creation.
