As a follow up to the previous cutting board I posted (https://www.routerforums.com/show-n-tell/140191-christmas-gift-raquel.html), I made this board with a juice groove on one side. They loved it. Both cook, so it will get a lot of use...maybe! :grin: Alli said she might not ever cut on it, and keep it on display!:surprise: This seems to be a re-occuring problem.:smile:

Same materials and design as the previous board. I designed it in VCarvePro and cut it out on the CNC. Making the juice groove was easy. I created an offset vector of the outside of the drawing, and add a line across under the hand hole, clipped away the extra stuff, and VOILA!, the groove was ready to cut. All went well, and I am happy with the outcome.

Note: There was a small knot in the top left corner of the board, so I filled it with epoxy!

We had a good time last night at our house. This is our oldest granddaughter (24), school teacher, and all around good kid! Ivan is an OK guy also.:grin: Even though our place is fairly small, and parking is limited, we still had about 25 family and friends show up. I think they came for the gumbo!>:)

Chicken and sausage gumbo (note the two burner pot!), shrimp creole, dirty rice, pistolettes, oh my! And of course, the margarita machine! :grin:

Looks like a great time Mike . I envy you having all those generations of family getting together like that .

I’m liking the groove on the one side of the cutting board , nice touch.

I think I can see Blondie to the centre left of the pic :)

Thanks Rick. Blondie didn't make this one. That is another little blonde that is the same age as Bella, so yeah - look alikes, and they are not even related. :grin:

One thing about getting old is that so many of the family have moved far away. This will be the first year in a long time that we eat Thanksgiving dinner alone. We'll be fine, but still, you miss those wonderful old gatherings with a table groaning from all the best dish from each person. Old stories told again to everyone's delight, people long gone remembered. Sure miss that.

Nice looking cutting board, I'm sure they were happy to receive it.

Looks like there was plenty of good food and company to be enjoyed.
