The cutting board is made of 4/4 Sapele, while the other baguette board is Walnut. Both are finished with Watco Butcher block finish as both are intended for food contact. The peppers are the feared Bhut Jolokia, which is a favorite of mine to grow.

I made these to show sample rewards for my upcoming Kickstarter.com fundraising campaign to help fund my startup farm. The walnut board will be given to my work wife because she likes to host parties and I figure she can use it to display appetizers.

Nice boards, Mike. I’m interested in the build technique for the baguette board in case you could share a bit more detail. The peppers look really mean!

I started digging out the walnut with a chisel and hammer. When I remembered that I had an angle grinder, I realized that was a silly way to do things. I carved out the center with 60 and 120 grit flap discs then hand sanded smooth with 180 and 320 grit. The finger holds were cut down halfway through the thickness of the board with the 60 grit flap discs. Then was rounded over with a belt sander.

I’ll post a few more detailed pictures later.

I can’t figure it out but these photos, it seems, are being clipped by LJ.
