Honestly I make other stuff besides cutting boards…



So I do make other things besides cutting boards, just seems like that’s what gets posted most often.  The bottom two boards were Anniversary/Christmas presents for my parents and in-laws.  They were both well received, and unfortunately are rarely used “because they’re just too nice”.  The top board was meant to be the same as the bottom two, but since the glue up wasn’t as flat as it could have been, I had a few exciting passes through the planer (read “projectile cutting board”).  Anyways, the rectangular board got smaller and smaller, until it became a square board.  Worked out in the end.

All boards are made from maple and walnut, food safe glue, and some colourful acrylic accent paint.  Finished with food-safe mineral oil.  The small one was put on Etsy and sold a few weeks ago!


Photo of the Week

We’re winding down our 6 month stay in Paris with only a few days to go, so this week’s photo is of course Parisian themed.  While I have many (read hundreds) of photos of the Eiffel tower from almost every angle imaginable, I particularly like this one.  Taken from the Monument of Peace and using my Bessa R with a 15mm voigtlander lens giving the odd perspective of the tower being quite short and framed within the monument in the foreground.
