Spruce and Walnut. Sharp edges. TBIII glue, ikea mineral oil finish. 35 X 26 X 4.5 CM

this is my 63rd board. it is made from reclaimed bed that was found in the trash.
I have a short post in my blog about how to connect these legs firmly.

Nice looking cutting board! It always produces a good feeling when you can recycle something.

I love that you put legs on the cutting board. It is a very nice design. I have some similar boards. My favorite thing to do is up-cycle wood that someone has thrown out. I might have to try your design. The beveled edge adds a sophisticated finish. Nice project!!

What I am really interested in is your box joint jig. I have been watching videos and reading reviews. I would really like to try it but a I am just a little apprehensive. It might be just a little bit out of my league. Any suggestions?

Rena – in my opinon, since it is a hobbie, and i’m not commited to time tables, there is nothing ‘not to my league’, as long as its not based on hand-work.
i actually built this jig twice. first version was good, but with some faults. took me about two weeks, i was without any experience (literraly my first project in wood ever), took a lot of time to get all the needed supplies. second version took me about two days. you can see hear my recent work with this jig:

go try it out. its an amazing addition to your workshop, and a great jig to own.
good luck,
