Turning Archive 2004

when cutting boards go bad (PIC)

Mike Schwing from Maryland
>I've been working on a large number of cutting boards for an order I received and this morning one of them went awry. On the final bevel cuts for the edges the table saw grabbed hold (for a still undetermined reason) and ruined the board. Undeterred (but very disappointed), I decided to make good of it as I've been wanting to turn another one of these anyway.

Maple and walnut, about 12" diameter. Comments welcome.

Side note - look how much "wow" factor is added by simply maintaining matching grain patterns. I don't always do this but might start paying more attention to it.

I'm going to see if they'll buy this one anyway even though it is round. (and not food safe)
