    I am going to make some end grain cutting boards for Xmas using the "Wood Whisperer" method. I plan on using a combination of soft maple and cherry (this will be aesthetically pleasing according to some). I am asking for comments from those that have made cutting boards through the years so...

    Free old growth pine boards

    My neighbor is in the process of remodeling a farmhouse that was built around 1890. I scavenged around 15 boards out of his dump pile, along with an old mantle, that date back from when the house was built. They are heart pine, between 6" - 12" in width, and lenghs of 5 - 8 feet. Some of...

    Made Some Cutting Boards

    After the kitchen, it was nice to make some things that didn't take months to complete. I used the dado blade on the table saw to make the handles. I liked that better than using the router. On the last one, I hogged out more wood to make it lighter - I thought that would be easier for the...

    cutting boards

    Besides the old favorites can mahogany (only end grain), bloodwood and bubinga be used for end grain cutting boards or bread boards. Concerned about toxicity. Finish is mineral oil. Thanks.

    Planing Colorful Cutting Boards

    I used the hand plane some panels I made to make some "patchwork quilt" cutting boards out of. I really enjoy making long thin curls come off of the plane. The walnut is my favorite but these panels had seven other species of wood in them. One piece of hard maple was really a pain because of...

    I am starting my annual Christmas projects. This year I am making hard maple cutting boards with cherry trim.

    Removal of Finishing from Cherry Boards- Help

    I have a few cherry boards which have been finished. I want to remove the finish. What is the best way of doing it? I tried drum sanding. It didn't work. The finish filled the sand paper quickly causing burn to cherry. I don't want to use planer either. It will plane the boards too thin:gar-Cr...
