Finally I finish my biggest project since I started making cutting boards. It came out in total of five bigger and two smaller boards. Some of them were gifts, some I sold and for the rest, I hope I will sold. I spare some material after all of this boards to make one smaller chaotic pattern cutting board and that will be next thing what I want to do.
I don’t think it is necessary to explain the way how I made this boards,there is nothing special about it (same way how I make it in my previous projects). Short info would be…end grain cutting boards made of walnut,cherry,padauk and maple.
For the ones who like what I made and want to see couple of extra pictures, I will add some which I took during progress in past few weeks.

They all look great! It’s kind of odd but my favorite is the last picture. I noticed how you used a curved handle which looks good but makes it easier to sand with a orbital sander! The last one I made I thought “it has to be easier with a curved handle”. Great job.

When I used padauk in a cutting board, I could never get rid of the sanding dust on the board. After I sanded the board but before I put mineral oil on, I would wipe the board of sanding dust (including using a vac) and the padauk dust would always still rub off on the rag. So, I stopped using padauk.

Did you notice that when you made these boards? I wonder if anyone else has had that experience?

Prava mala remek djela. Vidim da imaš, kao ija, ove cijevne stege, idealne su za stezanje kod ovakvih projekata. Baš me zanim kak će ispasti ove ‘chaotic’ daske od ostataka.
Dobra prodaja!

When you say it like that jat, it makes me little to think :) I cannot say I have same problem like you when I work with padauk but I noticed after I’m done with sanding that there is always a lot of red dust. I simply wipe it out before oiling board. But I can say it comes a lot of sneezing when I’m putting padauk through thickener ( it’s not connected on dust collector ) :(
XrayJay curved handles are easiest to make ,for me, and yes orbital sander do the job :)
Upravu si Ivane,cevaste stege su zakon,jedva sam nasao gde mogu kupiti,ali uzeosam samo dva para da isprobam hoce li mi odgovarati. Sad vec razmisljam da uzmem jos.
Thanks for comments guys!
