  1. Thanks. I won't be cutting on this one. This one will serve as a decoration or a cold dish / cheese plate. you could, but with cedar's grain being so soft, it would make a lot of blade grooves and would look like crap.
  2. Ok guys, I finally finished fine sanding it, went from 120 to 150, 180 and 230 grit and then sealed the block. next day I will fine sand it and lay another coat. It's coming out great!
  3. Sorry guys, I've been extra busy with my job and everything else. I have not even had time to seal the block yet. Some progress should be done this week. Let me figure out the material cost per block and I will get some rough #'s in. Btw, I grilled some wild salmon on cedar planks yesterday. The aroma from the cedar was unbelievable.
  4. Thanks. I am waiting on my salad bowl finish. It should come today. I'll have an update soon!
  5. Thank you. If I would make few of these, would there be enough of interest for them? Similar size and similar color. It would also be oiled and ready for use. It would be priced at a low price due to material cost and time put into it. I ordered Salad bowl finish from Amazon, just waiting for it to arrive, so I can soak in the oil and bring it home for use. Hey 12v... thanks for the offer of possibly making them for interested parties... shipping would obviously be added/factored into the cost right? I'm only asking cuz i'm way out here in the west coast/California. thanks! Yes and no. My job has great deals on shipping, and sending something as far as Cali would cost around $12
  6. Mainly for aesthetics. in case some hot ashes fall on the table or when emptying the ashes.

  8. thanks for the compliments guys! I'm gonna seal it next week.
  9. Lol, I'm going to use salad bowl sealer once I'm done sanding it
  10. Edge has been routed. I think I'm gonna use this as a cold or cheese plate. that would look nice and make a new cutting board out of harder wood.
  11. took off 3/4" on each side. block measures 17x13
  12. Block got sanded down to 2" and all the edges will be cut down square and smoothed. I will be routing the edge on both sides.
  13. Yes! I'm gonna make hard one next. hell, I may even make few more at a special request.
  14. Removed the clamps today and ran it thru a planner and a sander, and then glued everything else together. Here's few pics of the progress It was hard to align the block together when squeezing the clamps, each row was moving either direction. I shot brad nails to hold each row together.
  15. I wanted to start up the grill for the first time after seasoning the grades. I ended throwing few burgers and sausages on there later I can't wait to do my first Boston butt
  16. each row has to be glued separately, once dry, i will run it thru a belt sender and glue all rows together.
  17. taking nice shape. now the hard part. Glueing
  18. was scrolling thru internet and wanted to get a nice cutting board for my grill table, and came up with an idea of making my own. Normally you want to use a hard and dense wood like maple, oak etc... but to keep it free I'm going to use cedar at our shop. I made 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 blocks 2 3/4 long and will glue em together, sand it down, route the edges and finish it. Here's few pics I took today making it. There is another badge in making, I'd like the cutting board to be atleast 20x20
  19. Nice man! That grill is on there with them brackets isn't it? Once you paint them, you'll hardly know they're attached to the grill
  20. Brackets were painted and color matched, grill was moved to the backyard and grades were seasoned. Thanks to all those that were following my thread! I should be spending more time in the cooking sub-forum lol
  21. Added some nice heavy duty hooks. Going to season the grill today and move it outside.
