Cutting boards, round two...

Some more cutting boards from the last week…

The first one is a custom order of 13” x 20” and 1 7/8” or so thick. It has 10 types of exotic hardwood: maple, birds eye maple, jatoba, purple heart, cherry, tiger wood, blood wood, ash, elm, and black walnut. I added an edge profile shot as well of this one… I used my vertical raised panel bit for the edge profile, creating a natural finger grip.

The second board is another custom order of 12” x 18” x 1 3/4” and has 11 types of wood: maple, blood wood, jatoba, purple heart, cherry, black walnut, tiger wood, birds eye maple, hickory, elm, and ash. Deep radiuses on the corners and the edges rounded over.

The final one was my first attempt at a crosscut board: maple, cherry, purple heart, tiger wood, jatoba, blood wood, torrified curly maple, black walnut, birds eye maple, and ash. Again, deep radiuses on the corner and edges rounded over. One mistake I made was to use my 50T combination blade for the crosscuts instead of my 80T crosscut blade. This is why the crosscuts are not too good IMO as I find the joints to be way too noticeable (or at least they are way too noticeable for me, a recovering perfectionist!!). Next time, I will change blades before I make the crosscuts. This was inspired by a cutting board that I saw by Sam DeRose on instructables.com (http://www.instructables.com/id/Scrap-Wood-Cutting-Board-2/). I might try to fully replicate his design very soon (with the corners crosscut and flipped around).

Fun learning to say the least… :)
