Just finished my latest round of 17 LCDT’s (legless cheese death tables). Ongoing joke with some fellow LumberJocks.
Broad mix of species, but I stuck to a very popular shape/style that I created in my previous batch. Happy to report that they all sold just over 48 hours to friends, family and coworkers.
Would be happy to answer any questions, but they are very straight forward and nothing really special in terms of cutting boards. They are all around 1.5” thick with varying lengths of 13” – 15” in length. Had a great time with my 6 year old daughter in piecing together the patterns from my lumber stock. She got to be an artist and I got to teach her a bit about creating contrast in colors and thickness.
All finished with 4 coats of Salad Bowl finish mixed with mineral spirits. Smooth as granite and perfectly balanced with zero wobble.
For those wondering what the number are for in the photos. Here is the answer. I take a photo of each board and post them on my blog. I send out an email and have people “claim” their boards by number. The first person to respond via email for each board gets that particular board. As they sell, I mark them as “SOLD” on the blog. Usually doesn’t take but a few hours to sell them all. Given the fact that I only have time to make a few per year, supply is low and demand is high.
Thanks for looking. As always, I hope they inspire.
