Default 2nd cheese board and a question

I completed my second cheese board made from Padauk and Maple. I used the same template and general layout as the first one but I spaced and sized the maple differently, generally using the Golden Ratio.

I attached pictures of the sequence I used to create the board. I used too much glue in the glue up. The squeeze out on the bottom was worse than the top. I over compensated since I used too little on the first board. I'm still looking for the "Goldilocks Glue Up" where the about of glue is just right. The trough routed picture shows the test hole that I cut with the Forstner bit that I used to hog out part of the trough. A larger bit would have worked much better but I used what I had. I only drilled out Ĺ the trough since I was concerned that Iíd have tear out when the bowl bit hit the overlap area between the circles. Turned out that it routed out fine. I finished the board with a mixture of mineral oil and bees wax.

Now the question. Dust collection. I have a Bosch 1617EVSPK and I used the plunge base with the bowl and tray bit. I used the turret to make multiple passes until I reached the 3/4" depth. I donít have any kind of dust collection attached to the router and thatís a big problem. I had orange dust from the Padauk all over the shop. Iím still cleaning it up. Does anyone know of any dust collection system that works with the 1617 with the plunge base? Iíd prefer something I can buy but Iíd try making something if I had some kind of plan. This is a huge problem for me and Iíd really appreciate any suggestions.

I'm sorry, I can't really help with you question. But needed to say, that is a beautiful piece. Padauk? Is that a type of wood? I've never seen that before.

Barry:

Your work is great but be aware of the wood you're working with.

Please be extremely cautious when working with Paduk. It IS TOXIC! Check out the web site, Wood Allergies and Toxicity | The Wood Database

I think they look great!! Go to YouTube and type MTMwood in the search bar. This guy makes about 1500 cutting boards a year and is the guru. One of his series is the general "how to" make a cutting board. I think the 2 clips are about 8 minutes long each. It's definitely worth a look. Of course he has great tools... but he shows using his "regular" tools too.

Mike - Padauk is an African wood. You can look it up in Google and see it variation in color and get info on it's workability.

Rose - thanks.

Jon - thanks for the concern. Whenever i cut anything in my basement shop i wear a 3M N95 Particulate Respirator. I went through 2 of them with this board due to the dust primarily from the routing.

Jesse - I've seen these videos before and was impressed by how much work goes into the patterned end grain boards. The sequence of steps is similar to what i do on my edge grain boards but my glue ups are much less complicated. One of the things that holds me back from doing end grain boards is the final milling. I don't have a drum sander and i'm afraid that my thickness planner will tear out the end grain. For the time being I'm continuing to learn how to make the edge grain boards in different shapes, sizes and patterns. Yesterday, I decided to make coasters to go along with the cheese board. They will be oval and the wood pattern will be complimentary to the cheese board.

Default Dust Collection

I use a simple Shop Vac. and nozzle set as close to the work station as possible. It seems to take most of the sawdust away, with minimal clean up afterwards. Always wear a dust mask for woodworking. Hearing protection helps too, especially if anyone else is with you!!
