End Grain Cutting Boards

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


End Grain Cutting BoardsI recently completed by first ever cutting boards. These were both made as gifts for two different weddings. They were both made with a combination of walnut, cherry, and hard maple. As these were my first cutting boards, I need some help coming up with design ideas. So, I experimented with several different designs using CBdesigner before settling on these.I used a combination of power and hand tools to complete these. As I don't have access to a planer, the most time consuming parts were flattening the boards after the first and second glue up. After the first glue up, I did all the flattening with a smoothing plane. Thankfully, I was able to use the end mill at my office to flatten the end grain after the second glue up. On the first board, I used a 3/4” straight bit which still took a really long time. When it was time to make the second board, I bit the bullet and ordered a 2” Whiteside spoilboard bit which made things go much much quicker. After a lot of sanding, I finished these with mineral oil applied daily for the first week. Final thickness ended up being ~1.5” with overall rough dimensions of 11” x 14”.These were a lot of fun to make, and hopefully they'll get a lot of use from the new families who received them. I got a lot of inspiration from all the other LJ cutting boards, so thank you!

Lathe and Buffer Stand

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Lathe and Buffer StandI sold my 15×38 Craftsman lathe ( with the shelves under it) last weekend so I lost the machine I did my buffing on and also the storage for so many of the accessories for my Nova lathe. I decided to make a storage cabinet for all that stuff plus have a place to mount my HF mini lathe on and set it up for pens. I had this Grizzly knife buffer in my way on my regular workbench so I mounted it on the back of the stand for buffing. I have an adapter on it to accept my Beall buffing system.The cabinet is 19” x 31” x 36” high. It is made from plywood I had laying around and a laminate covered Steelcase top . I just had to buy the hinges and the casters. I put a shot of the caster that I bought on E bay.They are 3” and lock the wheel and the swivel with the one lever.I put a long cord on it and mounted 2 duplex outlets so I can plug in both machines and 2 other things if needed.
I add 3 cord spools on it to keep the cords managed and out of the way. The doors have 4 – 10mm magnets mounted in them for closure. It is finished with gray latex enamel!Cheers, Jim
