An order from a local bakery and cafe… they use a wood fire to bake… and wanted small boards with handles to serve their breakfasts in hot pans.
Over all size is 300mm by 150mm [12×6 inches] with the handle being 100 mm [4in] made from New Guinea Rosewood. I marked the handle with a slight inward slant and cut it on the bandsaw..
A small hole will facilitate hanging and all the edges were rounded over with a 10 mm roundover bit..
I have included some progress shots and the last pic is the oil bath I use to saturated the timber and then drip dry…
NB..I bought the knives..

Yes yes yes…Sergio is right, we use to serve “churrasco” here too. Ideal size. Which oil did you use for termination?

Nice foursome there Larry.

Did you add LLWW Logo?....I hope so…

The “secret” LLWW oil certainly brings out the timber to its best effect.

Did you on sell the knives with the boards? they make a nice accessory and look the part.
Keep up the good work!!

Other stuff:
Not sure I want to see GRUZZMAN attempting to fit into the red dress though.
I am hoping its a Santa outfit !!

Still almost too hot to work some days outside after 0730 and up to 1400 but I am persevering, not doing much WW just cleaning up the place for Christmas.

I noticed that one of the boards had a different handle layout – sort of indented into the board instead of flush – any reason behind that one?

Great work, as always – it’s nice to get orders like this as it shows they appreciate hand made items from local artists.

Keep it up!

Hi Larry.

If I were making these, I’d have made a recess to fit the pan they’re using, making it safer for the serving people. As has been mentioned by others, the lasered logo would have been a nice addition and an easy extra bob or two.

Nice looking boards. (why am I bot surprised?) :)

Glad to see you are busy. I guess they didn’t want a company logo. As always, nicely done.
