Nice boards…care to share how you cut the grove into the board

Hi, Thanks! I did them quite a while ago, don’t have the setup up anymore, but I can try to explain it, it was pretty straight forward. I did the grooves on the router table with start and stop blocks and a cove bit. For the end grain board I had to hold it on edge. Had I to do that kind of groove again, I’d get a different bit so I could keep it flat on the table. The others in the face or lower edge of the boards were done with the boards flat on the table.

Thanks for the info. Might be able to use the plunge router with a template…have to try both ways

nice, wife is after me to make some of these, I keep explaining that there are a couple of things keeping me from doing that right now; First it is -10 F outdoors, and no heat in my shed, and second, the blizzard that blew through a couple of months ago took down the power line to my shed, so there is no electricity to run my saws.
I think she is beginning to understand the problem, as when she ask again yesterday when I was going to make her that cutting board, I went out to my shed, grabbed my small table saw, and sat it up in her kitchen. When she hit the roof over how much sawdust I was generating, I explained again the problems, this time she understood.
I can only hope that she remembers the problems as I have explained them. Next week I will try to get the table saw back to my shed but right now the weatherman said a blizzard is coming our way. Oh well perhaps I can make her that cutting board this week….
Fantastic work, I envy your artistic endeavor.
