For my husband who likes to cut the cheese!
I made this for my husband for Valentine’s Day. While he’s good for some comic relief in my comments, he’s a fantastic husband. He knows when to just walk past the Home Depot bags without saying a word. After 20 years , he’s still the first person I want to tell when something funny happens or when I’ve had a yucky day.
The cutting board is 7” across at its widest. It’s made of walnut and maple. The knife wasn’t planned, but for the first time, the wood ‘spoke’ to me. I was looking at the scraps, admiring the grain when the knife shape made sense.
The basic shapes were cut on my Rikon bandsaw using a 1/4” blade. I softened the edges with a 1/4” roundover bit on my router table. Sanded by hand and ROS. Finished with Danish oil.
The grain on the walnut was a bit more ‘open’ than I expected.
Thanks for looking.
