    cheese boards

    i was a very busy monkey today, sorting through all my odds and ends boxes, lining things up just right, cutting like i knew what i was doing (and keeping all my fingers intact). when all was said and done, i had the makings for 10, count 'em, 10 cheese boards. here is the list of them, sizes and materials used... (the numbers are for inches larry... )

    1. walnut and hard maple, 11.5 x 8
    2. flame birch and walnut, 11.5 x 7.5
    3. cherry and hard maple, 11.5 x 7
    4. cherry and flame birch, 11.5 x 7
    5. cherry, hard maple, and walnut, 8.25 x 7.75
    6. cherry, walnut, hard maple, and african mahogany, 11.25 x 6.75
    7. flame birch and cherry, 9.5 x 8
    8. hard maple and african mahogany, 11.5 x 7
    9. african mahogany and cherry, 10.5 x 7.75

    funny thing is, one of them is now sold! the one co-worker with whom i was talking about them last week, when he saw the pic of all of them, told me today that he would like to buy one of them, but needed to check in with the gf first. he said that when it is finished, i should bring it in and give it to him here at work. now the real question is, should i, or should i not tell the wife...

    cheese boards finished!!

    another busy morning around here. ran all the boards through the sander to flatten them out, then on to the table saw for trimming up the ends, then 100-220 grit to smoothen them out. now they have thier first coat of mineral oil, and will get 2-3 more coats over the weekend

    What's the difference between a cutting board and a cheese board?

    one is made for cuttin and the other is made fer cheeze
    generally the size for a cheeze board is smaller than a normal cuttin board frank
