This was my first attempt at in inlay cutting board. I made it for my daughter as a house warming gift for her first apartment. The board is rock maple, cherry, padauk, and zebra wood. The inlay is katalox and maple.
A project that never stops! I started building the main cabinet using Michael Pekovich's plans three years ago. I soon realized a single cabinet wasn't enough, so added two additional single door cabinets to each side. Then came the display shelves between the cabinets. I continually modify the various tool holders and lay out as my tool collection changes, this in itself is a lot of fun! My turning chisels are enclosed in a tilting block with wooden hinges. All dovetails by hand. Rare earth magnets hold the chisels. The timber is all Fijian Mahogany, with some veneers of Honduras Figured Mahogany. Raised panel doors for the exterior, internal doors used shop made veneers. All drawer pulls and handles my first attempts at turning. Some french polishing, but mainly finished using Osmo. It has been a learning journey which continues.
