I had never made any cheese slicers until I saw Dick’s (recycle 1943 on LJ’s) and he told me where to get the parts. Of course my first ones were small rectangular ones but I wanted a bigger board so the next ones I just made the rectangle longer but still wanted it bigger so I made them wider with a cut out so the handle would still operate. The mahogany and cherry one with the walnut heart inlay is 8”x12” and the walnut and cherry one with the cherry bowtie inlays is 8”x14”. The bowtie inlay template I bought because it was on sale but the heart inlay template I made myself, Saved $14.95 plus tax and shipping HAHA I’m going to make more inlay templates in various shapes soon and I’ll post them. I’m stepping up the design game on these Dick so I expect to see different ones from you too HAHA I know you were planning on making some with a wider board.

Michael,
Those are dynamite. Probably be a while before I make any of ‘your’ cheese slicers. I’m still perfecting my lamps.
8 of them so far and I don’t have one to look at.

I love the cut out idea for the handle. Awesome. How do you cut the slot for the wire? use a jig in bandsaw?
Thx

I use the chop saw, I use a block to keep it forward of the fence and prop up the back with a 1/4” or so stick… Then I set the depth stop on the saw so the beginning of the cut is about 1/8” deep and that makes the back of the cut about 5/8” so the bar can pass through the slot.
