Handles Are A Good Thing   1 comment

With this new batch of boards, I’ve accomplished 2 goals for 2020:

  1. I’ve got a beginning inventory – again – of handled boards
  2. I’ve put together a good photography indoor set up that I can use

I was most disappointed in the photography for the last post. Just like with these photos, it was done indoors … but I used a white background that was totally over-exposed when I did the shots. Having dark boards in front of a very light background is not good … this set up was much better, and the colors of the individual boards are very realistic in these photos.

Thank goodness.

All of the new handled boards will be at this weekend’s event in Lake Havasu City, AZ … Winterfest. It will be my 3rd annual trip to this event, and I hope to see you there!

I call them Sous Chef Boards, because I think they are for your assistant in the kitchen, or Sous Chef.

That’s how it’s worked in our home, anyway.

However, I do know that cooks want more than one cutting board in their kitchen. Some boards are supposed to be pretty, some are supposed to be sized “just right,” and some are supposed to be easy to move around.

That means you need a handle. I believe.

So, Sous Chef Boards were born. These are the large variety, with about an 8″ x 11″ workspace – 2 sided – as well as a 10″ handle with a convenient hole to hang the board, if you’re so inclined.

Your mileage may vary, of course, but these have proven to be popular offerings from the Wood shop. This batch is special: they were cut out on the CNC. This is the first time I’ve had a vector file cut these out. There are 2 sizes as I worked through the possibility … and found the right size.
