Set of boards made for fathers-day gifts, one sold to friends locally and one for my father.
Maple, walnut and cherry.
Built boxes for them, I have been kicking around that idea for a while. Boxes are pine with luan board.
Boards wrapped in butchers paper to prevent oil and wax leech into box. Rolled up non-slip pad into each box

Yeah, I drifted way off course on my first try at routing the groove. I owe the save to my new drum sander, a few passes and I was back in business with minimal loss of material.

I used an inner template that I secured with spray adhesive and weighted down for a while. Had no issues with it moving while routing and didn’t have to worry about clamping.

Very great builds. The handle template idea is first for me. Looks very neat, like the style of the handles.
