Holiday cutting boards batch 2

November 11, 2013 2 Comments

The long grain cutting boards, are proving very popular, the shots below are of the second batch. The custom order Purpleheart board was more work than I thought it would be. when i was routing the edges it burned a lot more than I remember, maybe it was this specific board, or maybe my 1/4″ round-over bit is getting dull. I’m taking vacation later this week and when i get back I’ll be starting on batch 3 as I have 5 more boards on order.

    Been a while since I visited. You’ve been busy and it looks really nice.
    Tell me, do you worry about the possible toxicity of the woods you use for cutting boards? I got a little paranoid when I discovered that black walnut spoons can induce diarrhea.

      Hi John,

      Nope, I don’t worry to much, as the amount of the wood you are actually ingesting is very small, unless your hacking away like an old school butcher.
