Since my in-laws have decided to go full time in an RV I thought I would make a smaller RV sized version of the ww cutting board for them with my leftovers. It was going great right up until I put it outside across the frame of our awning to oxidize it and help the color turn purple( a lesson I learned from the first board!). So I checked the weather report, no rain for the next three days, so leave it outside for a while to soak up some rays. Long story short, weatherman was wrong! So now I have the dilemma of do it get it wet and try to bend it back or just go with it and tell everyone I made a curved serving dish??? Another lesson learned!

Leave as is and glue on a few legs and field questions on how did you do that.

impressive :)

I would plane a flat spot on the bottom so it doesn’t rock and tell everyone you did it on purpose!

Hey, penicillin was discovered by accident and it’s saved millions of lives. I agree with others here. Call it serendipity if you like, just put some legs or tiny knobs near the center on the bottom and call it done. I think it looks pretty cool.

If you dry it out it will bend right back,if not put in over on the lowest temp for an hour.

Put it in an oven with a pilot light for a couple of days, see where it sets, then take it out, see where it sets, then…screw it, #3 for “banana tray” .

So it sounds like i should list it as a new project called wood whisperer inspired curved banana tray and then prepare to start fielding requests to create a blog to document how to make such a thing!

That is too cool.

Like said above, flatten bottom or legs.

Way way cool.

Leave it as is. That’s one of the best postings I’ve seen on this site yet.

That is great. Flip it over and you have a “self-draining” cutting board. No more standing puddles of juice when slicing tomatoes!
