Had some maple and walnut scraps left over from some other projects so used them to make some cake knife and server sets. Never did these before but got a lot of advice from my buddies…” the thinner the better”. Started at 1/4” thick pieces for the knives and planed them down quite a bit. Used 3/4” pieces for the servers then cut the profiles on the band saw. Beveled the blades down to a fairly sharp edge. Laminated the handles and sanded to 320. Finished with mineral oil. Plan on making walnut boxes for both sets.

Great looking set Buster. Make a couple matching server plates and I’ll come over and enjoy a big piece of cake with you. Really nice set.

Nice, just keep them out of the Dish washer:)
Wood can be surprisingly strong, made a letter opener awhile back out of White Oak, about 1/16” thick blade almost sharp enough to cut yourself, thought for sure it would break but still going strong!

Beautiful Work – It’s always great to make something that someone can use.

Another fine job by BusterB! Holy crap, dude, I step away from the computer for what seemed a day, or maybe two, and find you putting the projects out like an assembly line. Great job on all of them. I agree, you’ve been doing a lot of lamination’s lately, but they are all different, and look awesome to me, so I say, “keep them coming”. Great job, buddy, and I’m still lovin’ the oil finishes.

Jeff- thank you my friend. Got a couple of years of backlogged projects I gotta get out… lol. Have always loved the look of all the wonderful laminated items you see on here so decided to give it a go…and like it…maybe a tad too much…maybe not. You froze yet buddy?
