    first attempt at juice gooves

    with things going so good today, i decided to attempt to do the juice grooves in a couple of boards for my brother's gf's daughter. first i rounded over the edges (as long as the bit was in the router). then i measured and cut the blanks for the templates. then drilled the holes for a rounded corner. then using the very good tape in the picture, attached the templates to the boards, then the boards to the bench i was using. then i started to route the grooves along the template edges. all went well until the last cut. the one for the larger of the 2 boards went ok, but the smaller one got away from me. only way to save the smaller board will be to plane it down, and call it a bread board.

    Well, stuff happens. Looks like you're on a good track.

    Did you give any consideration to using your CNC to cut the groove? I need to do a couple of cutting boards and was thinking about going a little oversize, setting 0,0 at the center (as I normally do), carve the juice groove, then cut the outer edge to final dimensions.

    I've done that. When I did it, it was because I was pulling the router in the wrong direction, and it wandered away. Lesson learned.

    Note to self: Size cutting boards to fit on CNC,

    Also: Carve initials and logo on both sides.

    i've had these boards a touch longer than the cnc. my brother showed up with a couple of big slabs of former bowling alley, and said that she wanted boards of a certain size. these were the last 2 of that bunch.

    Me to. When your routing with the work between yourself and the router move the router from right to left. When routing a inside perimeter, like Dan's cutting board, route clockwise.

    decided to save this board. not sure if it was going to be a bread board, or a cutting board with a groove (depending on how much thickness was left). got it flattened out again after a few runs in the planer, put the template back on it, and back to the bench. things went much better for this one than last time, with a nicely cut groove. rounded over the edges, and all that is left is the sanding and oiling.
