Just a few more chopping boards that I’ve knocked out recently… I ‘ve managed to vastly decrease the processing time due to finishing it off on the planer/thicknesser rather than sanding it down after final glue up. With just a fraction of a mm taken off with each pass there is barely any chip out but I always add a couple of sacrificial strips to both ends anyway. As I mentioned in my posts before I am trying to avoid buying new timber and always trying to upcycle wood for my projects from furniture, flooring, doors, firewood etc and here it was no different. Not a single piece of wood for those boards has been bought as a plank or board. It is a mixture of some flooring boards, off cuts from door factory, actual doors, and some acacia firewood log that travelled with me over 1000 miles from Poland to UK received from father in law whilst on holiday :)

1st Board – African Mahogany, Sapele, Spalted European Beech, Acacia Wood
2nd Board – American Walnut, European Beech, Acacia Wood
3rd Board – American Walnut only

Hope you like it and as always any criticism is more than welcome as long as it is constructive :)

Very nice looking boards – are the ends beveled to provide a minimalist handle?

Yes they are. I thought I won’t go with typical routed groove to add something different to its appearance.
