I assembled this cutting board a while ago but finally got around to finishing it. I’ve seen some cool profiles on board edges lately, so I decided to put an ogee on this one. My ogee bit is not one I use frequently anymore. It’s an older craftsman brand bit that I used to cut profiles in poplar for an entire house worth of baseboard and trim a few years ago. I wanted to go a bit deeper, but the bit finally gave out. All the carbide is still there, but instead of cutting, it just smokes and burns. It was really hard sanding off the burn marks from the end grain, but I got it the best I could. One end was pretty much black.
I used Maple, Walnut (some of it really light), yellowheart and a strip of bloodwood. This is a bigger board, 12”x16”, and about 1.5” thick. It was very well received both as a Merry Christmas and a “sorry for making so much noise all the time!” gift.
