Big Cutting Board heading to Berkley, Califorinia.......... UPDATE


This is the after photo with the new cutting board in place.

"Picked up cutting board from Fed Exp on Saturday. "Very nice work and we're quite pleased." Thanks Howard
Berkeley, California



This is the before shot of the old cutting board. It sits in a custom counter top where an indent has been made to contain the board and allow it to slide up and down the counter. This contains the board nicely and it can easily be moved near or away from the sink.










The new cutting board being created out of 8/4 hard maple is 20 3/4 inches long, 17 inches wide, and 1 3/8 inches thick and weights in at 15 pounds.
It will replace the well used one in the first photo. Here it is in clamp up stage. Because of the size and weight I slotted and glued biscuits to assist in holding this big boy together.






This is after it has been cleaned up and oiled for the first time.















This is the food grade mineral oil that I use to preserve and protect my boards.
