“Sink” Your Teeth into a Cutting Board

Article Image

This time of 12 months means hand crafted presents and this one is
extraordinarily helpful and sensible – a Slicing Board for an
undermount kitchen sink. It’s sturdy and held in place by the
rabbeted and flanged edges of the board. Additionally it is
refined with breadboards that accommodate wooden motion.
I used maple for its hardness and closed grain.

Within the following video, I’ll present how I constructed this
Slicing Board in SketchUp.

Assembly 1

I’ll activate X-ray so you possibly can see the within joinery. There may be
a brief tongue and three lengthy tenons.  Wooden screws, in
slotted shank holes, enable growth/contraction. A brief
heart part of the breadboard is the one glued space.
 And the breadboard building helps keep a flat
chopping floor.


You can begin this mission with a easy mannequin of the
counter’s sink opening.  On this counter opening for the
sink, the corners are barely rounded so it’s essential to
match this form within the chopping board corners. With a
SketchUp mannequin of the sink opening, the shapes may be captured
and used to start out the chopping board design.

I’ll full this mission in two separate video phases – the
first will accomplish an general form of the
elements. The second will present detailed joinery and wooden
screw implementation within the slotted shank holes.
