Here’s the final cake knife of last week with bonus coordinating cutting board. The cake knife is a santoku style blade in figured black walnut and the grip is curly birch.
The cutting board is maple, jatoba and more of the curly birch. Swipe to see a video of the chatoyance in the shop lights. If you’ve never worked with birch, I’d suggest you get some to try out. I find it’s workable like walnut but holds up more like maple. Nice stuff.
Congrats to my cousin Natalie and her husband Nathan!

I’ve had a run of cake knives this past week. Here’s the second, on its was out today. This is another maple chef’s blade with zebra wood handle and black walnut bolster. This one is a bit different than the last though. I kept a substantial grip and when I resawed the zebrawood, I decided to flip it for a mirrored grain pattern instead of continuous like on the last one. Swipe through for a couple detail shots.

Here’s the latest cake knife. First ballet got to oil this one and take some glamour shots.

Figured maple chef’s blade with a zebra wood handle and black walnut bolster. I really like this combo. The walnut and zebra wood are so different by themselves, but they blend into one another so well in this piece. Congrats to the happy couple!

When Matt @keddiewoodshop says I make cool cake knives, who am I to argue?! Here’s the latest one I’m working on. Figured maple chef’s blade with everybody’s favorite sparked sycamore handle. This is sanded up to 120, so I’m raising the grain (and stealing a peek at that figuring). Then I’ll re sand at 120, 220, and 320 before this gets its pyrography.

Started work on another cake knife last night. This will be the last of the spalted sycamore (the rest of the block isn’t very spalty). But this one will be a stunner. I’ve enhanced the picture a bit so you can kindof see what’s going on with the grain in the maple. Gonna be gorgeous!
Any new requests for spalted sycamore grips will have to wait until I can visit @fullcirclewoodworx offcut bins again. I *may* have some spalted beech available in the future too. Gotta see how it dries out first.

These two cake knives are finished and on their way to new homes tomorrow.
Black walnut chef’s blade with spalted sycamore handle and figured maple with black walnut handle. Custom pyrography on both. Each one I make is just a little different than the others and they’re always a fun build. If you haven’t made a cake knife, give it a shot!

Out of the clamps and squared up. Looking sharp! Since it’s a small board and a bit on the chunky side, I think I’m going to countersink some rubber feet in the bottom so it doesn’t sit up too high. Question for the #igwoodworkingcommunity : what kind of edge treatment do you think would be best for this guy? It’s 6x8x1-¼. Roundover, small chamfer, or a beveled under side like a mini @mwawoodworks board?

I’m in the middle of a batch of 8 cutting boards, but since I was in the groove and had some extra supplies, I started two more. One is a big striped maple and walnut board that’s been overdue for like a year. And since I had some leftovers, I figured I’d try my hand at a butcher block style board. Here are a few progress shots of that.
Started with I think 18" alternating maple and walnut. I ran these through the planer to ensure the sizing was perfectly square. Glued up lengthways, planed, sanded and cut down into 1.5" segments. Flip every other and stand them up on end. I added some pine to the ends to guard against tear out and some lateral cauls (if that’s a thing) to align the checker pattern. Looks pretty good so far, we’ll see how it looks tomorrow. It should end up being about 6×8 and 1+? Thick.

Sorry for the lighting in this picture, I have lamp clipped to the shelf above the belt sander. It’s a great work light but terrible for photography. Makes the walnut look orange.
Anyway, started a new cake knife commission yesterday and here’s how it’s taking shape so far. Walnut chef’s blade with a spalted sycamore handle. This was my last set of spalted sycamore grips. Gotta find some more, it was by far the most popular grip selection.

Sanded these cake knives all the way to 320 then realized I forgot to raise the grain 🙄
Oh well, at least I get a nice picture out of it 👌🏻
The chef’s knives on the ends are claimed, but the santoku’s in the middle are available. DM me if you’re interested, they make great wedding (shower) gifts!
