So I made this cutting board for one of my best friends who is a chef and did all the cooking for our wedding. He is also an Alabama fan. I over look that. I made it out of maple and cherry, the cherry cut pretty good, I got SOME burning in it but not a lot. The maple on the other hand…..well…. As you can see I got quite a bit of burning. I was cutting to the left of the blade and after examination after the fact my blade is kicked out a little to the left on the back end. So after that I made a router jig to flatten everything out since I don’t have a drum sander. Then I did the inlay I took and glued a few pieces of blood wood together to make a sheet sort of. And then used spray adhesive to sick the logo to the blood wood and cut it out on the band saw. Then put the cut out on the board traced it with a pen and routed it out…I need up with a gap! So I tried to fill it with putty but it looked horrible so I used the bit that looks like a top and routed out a line around the enter thing and filled it in with fine blood wood sawdust and wood glue to make it look like an outline. Then Sanded The Whole Thing And routed the edges and made the handle. I think next time I’ll make the handle in the middle of the board instead of one end. All in all I think it turned out really well and a GREAT leaning experience!!!!!! The blood wood shimmers in the light!!!!
