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!

Two cake knives complete and on their way to their respective parties. The more I make, the more I enjoy making them. Every one is my new favorite. Spalted sycamore grips with a figured maple chef’s blade and the other is a walnut chef’s blade with figured maple grip.
Like it? Want one? Got a wedding or other fancy event coming up? DM me for info.

It may be hard to tell from the picture, but this is the latest batch of cutting boards. (Some assembly required) 😂
Still a long way to go on these. Hoping to have this batch ready for @valentesnj opening day. We’re working together to bring a few favorite designs specially made with Haddonfield NJ in mind and only available at Valente’s Italian specialties. Get there early because supplies are limited!

Everyone loves walnut, but man, when the oil hits that figured maple, that’s where the magic happens!
I haven’t done an oil video in a while, so here’s a 2 for 1 deal with a double glamor shot to boot. Enjoy!

The circle of life! As two are about to be oiled and mailed off, I got a new cake knife commission for a maple chef’s blade with walnut handle. Very classic, very classy. I’ve got a good feeling about this one 😃
