Nice job Larry. If I used beer for inspiration there would probably be some fingers glued up in there with the wood.

That must be a no name brand. All they have are a bunch of XXXX.

Nice cutting board.

Nice looking cutting board. Looks like racing stripes. You may want to blog about your project before you start drinking next time, haha!

Hi Larry …nice job and can you send me some of that bottled inspiration !
I’ve kept an eye out for the “SpiroCrafter” as you suggested and don’t hate me now , but I picked one up at WoodCraft today for $14.99….normal price there is $39.99 : )

Len good pickup,, its fun to use.
Chuck, lighten up . I don’t drink while I am using power tools.. I might spill it. Seriously though I am safety conscious and only have a beer after all the sawing and planing is done. After I shut down for the day, then and only then is it time for inspiration,,!!!
BTW Jim I did make this one in my sleep that’s why I didn’t see the knot hole until after I had drilled it.
