.........am I 'cheating'?
My daughter asked me to make her a small cutting board in the shape of an Arkansas Razorback 'boar'. (You may groan now.)
OK, sounded like an easy and fun project. I found a pic of the Razorback symbol traced onto some old hardboard. Cut that out on the bandsaw with a 1/8" blade and have a template. I also drilled the eye.
Was considering laminating some mahogany and maple but spotted these bamboo cutting boards at Wally World, very inexpensive. And, they come from a far away exotic country. Oh, well.
So, wadda y'all think? Am I 'cheating' by not cutting, milling, re-milling and planing up my own board? Or is this a 'board'? I think a board is a board regardless.
BTW, each finished cutting board will cost about $2.50 in materials. My free but hauled 100 miles walnut and maple or mahogany would have cost more than that.
