Here is my project I finished recently. It has taken a lot more time and attention than my other projects. It all started with simple idea… chop down a tree, have it milled down to boards, dry them and make plenty of projects out of it! Simple right? lol well… maybe not as easy as I make it sound but if there is one thing I’ve learned on my woodworking journey, we must have plenty of patience and have room to grow.
This is my entry for the Winter Awards 2014 contest. I have been patiently waiting to hear more on the entry instructions so until then I will post it here under “my projects”. I must say I am very excited to have another project behind me. Lumberjocks.com has become a routine to my weekly schedule; everyone’s projects, reviews, and blogs are what keeps me returning for more.
About my project: I found that a simple “Walnut” cutting board would not “cut it” for the contest. So… I took a careful look into my current knife set up, thinking of all those very sharp edges that would merely destroy a cutting board. I had to do something better. I pondered for a while before I came up with this design. What is more beautiful than a end grain cutting board? One that will “stand up” to the test of time and allow me to see which knife I want. As you can see, it is a very simplistic design and I hope you like it.
I welcome your questions and comments.
