Walnut cutting board

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm making a 15" x 15" x 1 3/4" end grain Walnut cutting board for a friend's daughter and inlaying a cross in the top left.  The cross will go in with the rough side up and it will protrude about 1/16" so that's why I haven't cleaned it up.  You can see my test on the left; the cross has 0.005" clearance and fits very nicely.

 

So the reason for the post is to ask a question - you can see how I've mounted the cutting board, with screws from underneath through the mounting boards and into the holes where the silicone rubber feet will mount and then those boards mounted to the spoilboard.  To mount with clamps I would need really long screws so I came up with this method.

 

My question concerns my mounting: is this the way you've mounted things like this before?  It can't be an original idea because it's a good one... LOL!  The reason I ask is that I showed a couple of CNC folks something else I mounted like this not long ago and both said they've never done this nor have they seen it.  I just figured they don't get out much. ;)

 

Not a biggie either way but just curious.

There's a sign carver on YouTube that mounts his larger signs for carving that way. Not CNC work, though.

Finished this yesterday and it was picked up today for its trip to the Dallas area (a friend is driving over), so I thought I'd post a couple of shots of the finished cutting board.
