What started out to be just a simple cutting board for myself turned out to be a full blown blessing in disguise. I posted a pic of my very first cutting board on FB and all my friends now are asking me to make them one. This board was my very first routing a juice groove into it. I had to make a jig to position the board in the middle of my bench and the jig around it and follow the pattern with a 3/8ths router bit. This board is going to a good home to a good friend of mine. He’ll have plenty of fun cutting on this beauty.

Very cool. When you routed the blood groove, did you have any burning?

I had just a little burning at the corners but with time and patience you can sand them out.
