Sticking to the plan last night, I got through all of these boards for both rounds of 120 grit. Here I’ve raised the grain and I’m getting a sneak peak of what the boards will look like when finished. Today, I’ll do another round of 120 on all sides then probably do a chamfer on the edges before moving to 220.
The rack I’m using in the last picture is just a wire file rack from staples. Works perfectly for my usual batches of 8 and I use it for both drying after raising the grain and after oiling.

For #tooltuesday I’d like to feature this handy crevice cleaner I got from my dentist. She must know I’m a woodworker because she gives me a free cleaning tool after every checkup! A specialized crevice cleaning tool like this would probably run $19.95 at some woodworking stores.
But seriously, this toothbrush has been in my apron pocket for about a year now and it’s been super useful for dusting off pretty much any small part or crevice.
In the picture, I’m cleaning out the back fence of my crosscut sled to ensure the workpiece isn’t thrown off 90° by a speck of dust (yes, I should have added a chamfer to the fence, it’s my first, I’ll fix that on the next one).
Great tool, super handy and costs practically nothing. Try it out and carry a toothbrush around the shop for a while. It’s basically the equivalent of a @jimmydiresta icepick for cleaning.

Second set of boards are out of the clamps and glue scraped. Ready for the planer next. I did a pretty good job with the clamps, they’re all nice and flat already.

I’ve said this before, but when I make cutting boards, I like to use a cheap plane (not this one) to shave the glue drips flush to save my planer blades some work. They’ll get enough of a workout on this maple, it’s hard as a rock! I took one decent shaving with the Stanley No.4. I’ve got a number 5 on my list. Lots to learn about hand tools, but one thing that seems clear is the 4’s angle is too high for figured hard maple. Lots of chatter. I’m sure the blade could use a honing too. Definitely operator error is a huge factor too.

Shoutout to the DIY wire jewelry makers. This stuff takes talent and a lot of patience, neither of which I possess in abundance. I’m going to stick with jump rings.

First batch out of the clamps, next batch in! I only have enough pipe clamps for 4 boards at a time, but that’s ok. It helps me perfect my #workshopshuffle and project flow. All 8 will be ready for the planer early next week.

8 cutting boards in 2 styles custom made for and only available at @valentesnj
Both are 9×12, on the left is walnut with a zebrawood core flanked by hard maple. On the right is a fancy looking maple with a walnut core and yellowheart highlights. Still a long way to go, but if these are looking this good now, just wait till the oil hits them. 😃

Taking a note 🎧 from @kjsawdust with some #shopsounds ! Turn your sound on for some protective coating peel and the crisp snap of a perfectly fitting lid and miter joint. Music to my ears 👂🏻❤️

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.

The pasta display boxes are really coming together now! Plexiglass installed along with the slider pull/trim. The best part is yet to come when I get to peel off all this protective plastic. (#shopsounds ) I’ll save some for @cgb0720 since she loves it as much as I do #oddlysatisfying
Actually I think the best part will be getting them off my tablesaw so I can continue work on the cutting boards exclusively built for sale at @valentesnj
