This is the first cutting board I make by order. I had some freedom in the design and choice of wood. Just some tips were specifically asked.
Most of the wood is algarrobo. Separators are Lapacho and cedar the sides.
To Reinforce the union sides with glue and some small dowels of 3 mm. Everything else is just stuck with glue.
It was not easy jigsaw figures originally working as an inch in thickness, and algarrobo is hardwood.
A while ago bought a second-hand router mainly had in mind to use it as I saw several on LJ. So I made a lateral support system, a tray slide which ran the router …. and use it as a planer. Really valuable investment and am very happy with it. Thereby achieving a uniform thickness bonded timber.
Sanding to 240 and finished with beeswax.
The system handles it with old horseshoes, I did not like but was a specific request. As wil not bet on there and also make more space needed to store the board.
Thanks for looking!
Greeting for all.
