Yo its me back again
got everything finished this time
Picture 1 & 2 An end grain cutting/chopping board.
Silky oak, European Walnut, Ebony and (I think NG Rosewood)
Still need to work out where the thickness dimension lies which determines either its a cutting board or chopping board.
Picture 3 & 4
No prizes for recognising these two pictures from a previous post.
Once I got over the shock of just how much skill and preparation is required to ensure these type of boards are impressive is required I perserved and finished it. (warts and all)
I tried to give it to my son as a chopping board but his reply was ” nice work on the cheese board, might make a non functional chopping board”
Definately a couple of cheese boards , again from a previous post which started all this crazy work!
Now this is a practice run after my original attempt at picture 3 and 4 was less than satisfactory.
Making cutting boards requires an initial detailed understanding of due process and and as a result will only alow a small amount of “screw ups” along the way.
I found in my case the final products can be both rewarding and frustrating particuarly if they do not refelect the effort taken in being attempting to be precise and the standard expected for the completed product
Will I make more? I dont think so…. I will leave it to the experts, still I had fun and learned a lot even if it was a result of crying out for help half way through and post build.
P.S. Thanks to all the LJs that responded and those who took the time to post blogs on the process
Happy New Year to everybody !!!
