These are a few of the cheese slicing boards I’m making to force on the family as Christmas presents. To go with the cutting boards I gave them last year. Some are ones I am setting up kinda like cutting boards and others are of solid wood. Boards in first pic are Maple, Padauk, Walnut, Oak and Purple heart. They are all 6” wide by 10” long and 3/4” thick. The ones in the second pic are a nice piece of Walnut crotch and a Tiger tail Maple and they are larger.

Just something that can be done fast while glue and poly dry on bigger projects. Also working on a second box for the Box Swap. First one wasn’t exactly what I had in mind so I am starting over with a better design and different construction.

In case you meet any resistance in ‘forcing’ these cheese boards onto family members I would be glad to take them off your hands. Really well done and great looking. Do the metal parts dismount for washing or is that necessary?

Thanks for the nice comments. Patterns were fun. Got them off a tutorial on LJ where a lot of my ideas and inspiration comes from. Glad I stumbled on to this.

Stefang, parts are chrome or stainless steel and probably won’t be washed much, just wiped of with oily rag we do the cutting board with.

Monte, hope you are still doing well at Sturgis and making lots of money. Shows are tough way to make money. Hope the show ending will let you get some wood in the mail.

Charles, I am gonna experiment with similar patterns for cutting boards. Should work. Glue up will be the hardest part.
