Been seeing a lot of these lately and managed to make a couple myself. Finally got a new digital camera so here are the pics. This was the prototype..cherry maple and walnut. Had some problems with the glue up, its a lot of pieces to do at once. Was a new challenge!!

These have to be measured exactly. Any errors compound as you go so measure three or four times before cutting once. After I showed this one to my wife she had me make one for a wedding shower she was going to. It was a huge hit! She said I could have solld 10-15 of these babies in a few minutes. She has some of the other women asking for my card..maybe I will have to get a card..LOL!

This is certainly a nice looking cutter and I am sure it was a bit hit. I have been meaning to try one of these myself, provided I can free up some time from the other projects my wife has “commissioned”.

Looks great!
Tried glueing boards by myself but can’t get them together before glue starts to set.

I now have a helper when I start a glue up! My Wife!
She helps me keep things tight and in the correct orientation.

Your board is very nice.
Thanks for sharing.

Sweet. That looks really great. Nice choice of woods.

I know what you mean about accurate cutting and frustrating glue ups. But the results speak for themselves.

Very popular design… yours is well made and the grain flows across the weave.. the background however could use a little continuity… but not bad..9 out of 10

Thanks Larry! This first one was a struggle during the glue up and things got out of order! It was a little bit of chaos!!

On my second attempt I glued it up in 4-5 sections the glued them all together like you mentioned in one of you blogs. I also numbered the pieces so the background stayed in order, unfortunately I didn’t manage to get a picture of it before it was given away.

Still a 9 out of 10 from the Chairman of the Board, I’ll have to call this one a success!

Have your say...
