I’ve been having a go making a handle and curved chopping board for the ULU knife blank from Professional Woodwork Supplies.
While I have made knife handles before by hand, this was the first time I have integrated some CNC steps into the process, and in particular for cutting the mortises for the blade tang (or in this case, tangs).
I also used the CNC to carve out the hollow chopping board. Takes about 10 minutes, so a very quick set and forget to create the shallow hollow.
Next time I will try to make a much thicker board, with a deep hollow.
Timber is Camphor Laurel, and the same piece was used for both the board and the handles. The next one will be made from some of the Gidgee I picked up at the wood show.
Finished with Foodsafe Plus oil from Ubeaut.
