Cutting Board Progress

I am making 4 cutting boards for gifts. I made each unique. The project seemed easy, but I learned that my tools needed some tuning to get the flush fits. They leave little room for error.



From top left giong clockwise, Purple Heart and Maple, White Oak and Walnut, Maple on Walnut, and Cherry and Walnut

I'll bet the purpleheart and maple really stands out. They all look good in the picture.

Procrastination Hurts

I had to spend some serious shop time the week before the holidays as I greatly underestimated the time needed. The gifts got their last coat only 4 hours before giving them away. Didn't even wrap them as I'm betting a curing board with fumes most likely shouldn't be sealed by wrapping paper. I didn't get a chance to photo the post-finish boards as I was scrambling to finish. I will have to make a point to allow more time for errors and interruptions in the future.

Ahhh, I see that the pics are in the project listing. Adding some suspence, eh, Jeff? Making us hunt a bit. I see how you roll. Excellent! Heading over there.
