Chopping board


This is my favourite chopping board, I bought it in the mid 90's. It's made of beech which has terrible dimensional stability so roughly every decade one of the glue joints will split. This time I decided to put dowels in rather than just reglue it.

I'm using a shooting board to hold the plane flat.

Drilling as upright as I can.

Dowells.

Glue.

The plank that I glued back is seriously low.

I marked the holes more accurately than that. My best guess for where the error came in, is trying to feed a normal twist drill with a 118 degree tip angle into a bradawl mark.

Flatter.

At this rate it's not even going to last another hundred years.
