Ok this is basically my first decent project without any real instructions. There are a few probs but i feel it turned out well. The table saw fence and splitter i was using wasn’t setup exact and ended up with some non perfect cuts. But overall its for my dads birthday and i think he will like it. Sanded to 220grit with my sweet new Festool RO 150 FEQ and CT22 and finished with 4 coats of General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish.
Yes i did get the idea off Sawmillcreek but i didnt use the instructions it had and mine is a little different.
So thanks to everyone here and over at Sawmillcreek.

Nice piece, I will build one sometime soon. Are there really any perfect cuts?

Something tells me the glue up was a challenge. Very nice.

I’ve been wanting to do a similar board myself , but haven’t had the time….thanks for the inspiration and I’m sure your Dad will appreciate it no matter how many cosmetic challenges it might have . Great job if this is your first time….Do you own a jointer or a router table ? You could have cleaned up those edges with either one : ) Have a great day and Happy Birthday to your Dad !
