This weekend was dedicated to woodworking around our hose. Early in the morning on Saturday we went to the lumber mill and picked up some rough cut maple, cherry and walnut. I needed to help my dad hang some crown molding in a few rooms so I spent the day there. To my surprise, I came home to FIVE cutting board glue-ups. I am pretty impressed considering I left on Saturday with the shop full of 12 foot long rough sawn boards. It seems she was paying attention when I was prepping stock previously because she planed everything and jointed an edge with a router.
Up until this point, she had never touched a router, but now it is one of her favorite tools. She isn’t sure what all the profiles are for but I had a 1/8” round-over in my flush trim Ridgid so she edged all of the boards with that.
She sanded and finished them all yesterday before and after we went to the woodworking show. I can’t say I have ever banged out 5 cutting boards in a weekend. Now I either need to go out and build something fantastic in that amount of time, or don the apron and get in the kitchen.
