Introduction: Custom Cutting Board - Project
Hey everyone! I just completed a really simple and fun project that is going to make a great gift. I did it all with this great little desktop saw. I have put together a video to demonstrate all the steps. I bought the cutting board from Home Depot for $7.99. Alright, lets get to work.
Step 1: Things You Will Need...
- Cutting board - can be found at Home Depot, Bed Bath and Beyond
- Wood glue - food safe
- 2 hours of time
Step 2: Pick a Shape to Add to Your Cutting Board
Suggestion - keep it simple here. The more curves and corners, the tougher the project.
Step 3: Fire the Wood Machine Up - Watch Those Fingers
Cut out the shap. Go slow and steady to minimize the sanding after.
Step 4: Transfer Shape to Second Board
This is where the fun begins. Carefully trace your shape to the second board. Pay attention to the wood grain direction.
Step 5: Time to Get Some Holiday Anger Out of Your System
I think this picture says it all.
After your shape is put in, clean the board and invite some friends over to enjoy some freshly sliced cheese.
