We have a garbage disposal in our sink so I thought it would great to have a board so I could scrape the cutting right into it, easy clean up.

How’d you do the bottom? Are there feet, cleats, or a rabbet around the edge? I’m planning to make one for our new kitchen and will include a channel routed in the perimeter to route the runoff to one side as well.

Answer for CueballRosendaul

On this one I rabbeted the bottom out.
The next one I made I used rubber feet about 1/2”-5/8” high. (Home Depot)
The rubber feet is the best way to go and a lot easier.
Just set feet inside the sink basin.

Just a warning these over the sink boards warp pretty easy because of moisture from the drain and people leaving water around the edge of the sink.
I have to replace mine every 2 or 3 years.
I use a mineral oil finish on my boards but I thought about using a lacquer or urethane finish on the bottom
That might seal it good enough.
I don’t sell these boards just for that reason.

I was also wondering what held this pretty board in place. Nice idea using the rubber feet : )
My friend has an over-sink board that is warped to heck. I might steal your idea as a Holiday gift for her : )
Thank you !

Great looking board. I wonder if making them end grain it would help with the warping. We have a board I made from Corian that we use for this and I also made a larger one that covers both sinks…gives the wife a little more counter space.
