    Finished a Scott Lewis Cutting Board

    I haven't made one of these for several years.

    This one is to thank a neighbor for the loan of his tractor . . . several times .

    That looks too nice to actually use! The choice of woods, the overall shape and the finish look great. I don't know why, but my eye was especially drawn to the grooves (top and edges) - they look very crisp and that adds to the overall look of quality.

    Your friend should be very happy to receive that gift!

    Fancy Glenn! Now he will look forward to slicing and dicing in the kitchen.

    Yes, how did you route the handles?

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.

    The process is pretty well outlined in FWW #233. Basically you glue up the blank, layout your design curve, route a specific width long that curve, bandsaw the blank in two, clean up the edges and laminate the first inlay inbetween the two pieces during the second glue up. This is repeated three times which makes the effort take a given amount of time waiting for glue to dry ;-)

    I used the bit from the article; Woodside #1475 IIRC but, other makers offer the profile. The secret words when searching are "edge cove bit" or "edge flute bit". I made a temporary fence that had a curve that matched the end of the cutting board. I used start and stop blocks to help me make the cut in a quick smooth movement.

    I practice the move a few times without cutting. The result is pretty good right off the machine.

    The better I do on the cut, the less finish sanding is required.

    Glenn, VERY nice, and an excellent tutorial. Anthony will likely be pushing you to use the tractor a LOT more . . . Best, Patrick

    Looks great Glen. Isnít it interesting how the wood is lighter on the glue joints. I have only noticed this with cutting board. I donít recognize the wood. Hickory?

    Thanks for showing that technique. Very nice.

    I ordered one of those router bits.

    Beautiful cutting board Glenn. I have made 2 or 3 dozen cutting boards over the last 3 months, for gifts and some sold. Folks don't realize the amount of work that goes into making them, especially if you make something other than a rectangle shape. Curves, grooves, and veneer stripes increase the effort, but worth it for oohs and aahs you get for the effort. Keep up the great work.

    Hard maple with walnut, cherry and padauk inlays. The part that gets me is the one lighter strip. These were all cut from the same board and that strip appears like the others on the other side.

    Great work and well designed. Thanks for sharing.
    Rustic? Well, no. That was not my intention!

    Beautiful work Glenn!

    How did you get the inlays curved and overlapped like that? That is fantastic!
