Charcuterie Board

I like it! You’ve given me ideas. If you could make changes, where would they be? 

so overall, I like the way it came out ... the bottom is annoying with the gaps, but I guess you dont really see it all that much so I can get past that. The height of the edges I think actually are a perfect height, 2" on those, with the 1/2" bottom. Still real light weight ... but I did use alder, so weights may vary with some other woods.

- the glue up .. I would look for a better way to go about that. The struggle was real with that one haha. Not sure if there is one?? But I would be up for trying something else, it was messy and was probably red lining the working time of the glue.

- I would more than likely also go with Kev's idea of the donut model to make it a perfect circle on at least the inside (ties in with the hatred of the gaps) Plus this would alleviate all the glue that I apparently missed cleaning up on the inside that was an absolute nightmare to hand sand off.

- Cutting out the pieces, I would make sure the sacrificial fence was on both sides of the blade. A couple people had some tear out and when glued together those spots look kinda goofy.

This would have been a perfect spot to just use weight instead of clamps.  5 gallon bucket of paint or water probably would have done the trick nicely.

Sanded with a 2000 grit foam pad to just get the nibs off after spraying it … then applied my BB conditioner and this one’s a wrap! Learned a good deal on this one haha.

came out way better than I thought it would a few times after some issues but if I ever have to make another one it shouldn’t be as bad haha

thanks for the help through this one guys!!

I bet he meant the outside ring pieces. 

What was the original thickness of your board for the outside pieces? 

How did you cut the bottom?

Thanks. The reason for asking, I’d like to try and make one and using a router, make it completely round. How thick do you think the sides should be after routing? 

mine are 3/4" with 20"D base and seems about right ... I think anything thinner might look "off" ?? If you were just a little under 3/4 I think it would be fine but not much.

If you were making a smaller one, I think you could get away with 1/2" 

That's just my thoughts lol
