How to make a narrow cutting board.
Wait, what is a narrow cutting board?
It is a selfmade appliance that I use to cut of the extra allowance after stitching. Simply wrap the upper around the cutting board for easy access. I also use it to punch holes for eyelets in spaces and locations that are difficult to reach.
So, let’s get started.
We have all experienced that after a while cutting boards get worn out, especially in the midsection.
But the quality of the edges is often as good as new.
Here is a tutorial to turn those edges into this useful appliance.
In this example I have used a bar of wood approximately 70x6x4 cm.
step 1: mark the width of the wooden bar onto the edge of the cutting board
Step 2: saw off the marked edge.
Step 3: roughen the surface of the wooden bar and also the underside of the cutting board.
Step4: glue the cutting board onto the wooden bar with an expanding glue to make sure it’s attached really well. Let it set until the glue is cured.
Step 5: sand the edges of the cutting board as well as the rest of the wooden bar and make sure the edges are smooth.
Step 6: the narrow cutting board can easily be attached onto your workstation by using a clamp.
The narrow cutting board is part of my interchangeable workstation.
