Cutting and Serving Board

Introduction: Cutting and Serving Board

My daughter asked me if I could make a cutting and serving board for her friend. I went to my friend Zupan Boris for instructions. She is engaged in wood processing and makes really wonderful products. He explained to me in detail how to make a board. He also gave me the necessary material. When I looked at the piece of wood, it was nothing special. Many times such parts are destroyed, but we can do something beautiful.

Step 1: MATERIAL

1.Part of a chestnut trunk

2. Resin hardener and catalyst

3.Crushed glass from bottles

4. Metal handles

5.4 piece of wood screws for attaching the handles

Step 2: TOOLS AND MACHINES

1.Workbench

2.Electric shape

3. Electric level grinder

4. Wood cutter

5. Chisel

6. Plastic gun

7. A pen for writing on wood

8.Gas burner

9. Base board

10. Water scale

11.Weight

12.Fasteners

13. Chalk

14. Sandpaper gr 80

Step 3: PROCESS

1. I put a part of the trunk in the workbench

2. I marked the area to be covered with chalk

3. I removed the crack in which there was bad unusable material with a chisel and an electric grinder.

4. I leveled the top surface

5. I turned the trunk, fixed it and leveled another surface

6. I sanded both surfaces

7. With a gas burner, I highlighted the years of growth of the trunk

8. I broke the bottle into small pieces. I used pieces of glass instead of pigment. This also uses less resin, and we do not need pigment.

9. I placed the cutting board on a smooth surface.

10.I sealed the bottom surface with a plastic gun to keep the resin from leaking out.

11. I leveled the board with a spirit level.

12. I prepared the resin according to the manufacturer's instructions. I weighed all the ingredients.

13.First I poured a little resin into the crack. Then I added glass. Then I filled the crack to the top with resin.

14. the next day I sanded both surfaces.

15. I wrote the dedication and the date with a wood pen.

16. I coated the whole board twice with oil suitable for food.

17. I also fastened the handles with screws.

Step 4: USE

This is what using a board looks like.

Enjoy.
