My last cutting board project was a lot of fun but it didn’t come out perfectly because I struggled to get my wood stock to a plane & uniform thickness. Well I’ve purchased a planer and it’s time to put it to the test! I picked up some walnut, curly maple, and ash today and they ranged from slightly under 1” thickness to about 1 1/8” thickness. I planed them down to 3/4” thickness and it came out great. So now I’m going to try to make 2 more cutting boards as presents. I still don’t have a jointer so the lumber yard helped me out there.
The last stack of wood (last pic), which I haven’t done any milling on yet, is for a present for my sister, she’s expecting her first baby in May and she loves to quilt so I’m going to take a crack at building her a quilting rack out of walnut, curly maple, and maybe some purple heart which i still need to pick up.
