This project is technically for my wife but in reality it’s very self-serving. I absolutely love pastries of all kinds and this project will help in their creation. ”Borrowing” ideas from a product that we saw in Williams-Sonoma, this pastry board features outlines for crusts, a small ruler, and a mini conversion chart for common dry and liquid measurements. I used some cypress that was left over from my Nakashima Table for the main panel and edged it with some beautiful cherry. The board is reversible and has a 1 1/2 inch lip to secure it to the countertop. The cherry edging is also recessed slightly on the sides to allow for easy lifting and carrying. Unfortunately the archival ink I used smudged very slighty. Though it dried quickly, I was a bit impatient and should have waited longer. The finish is shellac and poly for durability.
