Creating Over Sink Cutting Boards

Our next project will be the creation of cutting boards made to fit over part (or all) of a kitchen sink opening. These are particularly handy in small kitchens where counter space is at a premium.

The boards are made of solid, natural woods, selected for tight grain and hardness.  Boards are ripped into strips, the strips turned up to use edge grain on the board surface and glued back into a large blank.

A lip is routed on the under side of the boards to they sit securely on the rim of the sink.

The boards are sanded satiny smooth and finished with mineral oil.  Then packaged in custom made boxes: each board is slightly different, so I make a box for each to be sure it fits properly.
