Here are a few Pasta making boards from 1×4 Aspen, length is 16”, handle size is 7”.
They are my version of boards sold for making homemade Pasta called, Cavatelli and Gnocchi.
The family has made them for generations, kind of a pass down thing, so made a few for home and family members. Finished with foodsafe Mineral Oil.

Paul, as best my eyes can tell, 3mm deep and wide, hope that helps. Had set the router depth by memory.

I am not familiar with long Cavatelli and Gnocchi, I am used to seeing them as a more round type of pasta, can you explain how you use these please sir.

Thanks

ElmoSr, both of these type pasta’s are made from the dough, into long ropes, if you will, then cut into approx 1 inch long pieces, which are then ‘rolled’ along the board to shape them into ’ ridged shells’ if you will.Hope this is helpful.
