Surfboards For The Discerning Cheese Eater   1 comment

Mr-Ms-Logo---LargeI love this design of cheese boards.

Some people want these to be cutting boards, but they’re really not; they are serving pieces. The elegant curves that are underneath these boards are made on the table saw & help them to sit very lightly on the table. For a photo essay on how this design is made, see the link below.

These are the first surfboards I have made since January, and they proved to be crowd favorites last weekend at the Ventura 4th of July Street Fair. Only two of these sold, but they were a focus. I even had a competitive woodworker tell me he wouldn’t steal my design!

Which made me laugh.

After all, I saw this idea on a TV show, PBS’s “Rough Cut – Woodworking with Tommy Mac,” and then “improved” the deisgn with better proportions and prettier wood selections, in my humble opinion!


Cutting Sideways = Curves
