This is my seceond cutting board / trivet whatever you want to use it for thingy. :-)
It is also the first time i have actually used my scroll saw to cut somingthing besides knife handle blanks. I know it was pointed out that Texas may not be geographically correct but hey i did not draw it i just got the outline from the web.
This is about 8” x 8” i think and is made from curly maple (a really gnarly looking piece that i got cheap and they couldnt see the inner beauty that i did) it has a strip of purple heart down the center surrounded by walnut strips with the final outside being birdseye maple that had very little birdseye in it.
Typical cut and glued with titebond III, planed and sanded. I then glued the stencil on with spray adheasive let dry and cut out on the scrollsaw. I sanded the remnants of paper and glue off of the face then used a dremel tool to sand all the edge nooks and cranny’s. Then chamfoered the edges on the router table.
Sanded to 400 grit and finished with watco natural danish oil.
Like i said i dont see this one actually being used as a cutting board.
Enjoy everyone and have a great thanksgiving.
