« Part 1: First Cutting Board Project Part 2 of Projects series no next part

Well, it’s not fine woodworking but sure solved a problem, pictures hopefully tell the story.

This has been on the list of ‘to-do’ for months, a ‘hint’ from wife made it happen.

A 2D Visio plan of this project is available for the asking, just send a pm or email and let me know if you need jpeg or native Visio format.

Hey if you’ve got plans I’d love to take a look at them. I’ve got a couple birch ply boards just itching to be diced up.

Thanks Jorge and Lew!

William, Send your email address to me via LJ message and I’ll return the drawing. Let me know if you want the native Microsoft Visio file, PDF file, or the extracted jpeg pictures.

Either way this is a simple project involving cutting flat 1/2” panels, a few dados for the shelves, and rabbet for the 1/4” rear panel. With good snug fitting joints and a good glue-up, it’s very strong as well. Could be enhanced with a hinged door or with a better grade of wood and finish, still uses the same basic design.
