this is another idea for a cheese slicing board, I inlaid a 1/2” wide piece of Paduak into a Hickory board 1/2” deep right where the wire slot goes, then cut the slot into the inlay just as it is done normally, this makes the board stronger than it would be if I laminated it, as that would be gluing up end grain, this adds a little more interest to the board, plus draws focus to the slot, which is the objective for slicing cheese.

the last 2 pictures are of the feet on the bottom, you drill a 5mm hole about 3/8” deep add a little ca glue, then press them in place, they seem to work out very well, much better than the nail in feet I used earlier. these are $2.90 for 25 for the 5mm, and $3.90 for 20, for the 10mm. they are a non skid plastic, and keep the board up above the counter.
here is the link for the feet.,40993,41285&ap=1

thanks for looking.

That really adds a nice visual touch, Smitty.

I like that foot idea, too. Might just have to put those on cutting boards instead of the ones with screws.

the instructions on the feet say to drill a 5mm hole, I drilled a .185 hole and it fits a little bit tighter, and I hope it will hold better. I am going to try the 10mm size for cutting boards and see how that will work out.
