Cutting Board

This is a little Telecaster styled cutting board. Believe it or not I found this figured maple at Home Depot! It's not a guitar, but it is guitar themed.

I used a really thin bit and engraved some faux pickups and a bridge. Here, I'm getting ready to fill them with some shop-made Padauk filler. I used a drum sander in the drill press and captured the dust in a cup, then mix it with wood glue.

Paste applied, waiting for it to dry, then I'll sand it flat.

All done. The filler gets a little darker whe mixed with the glue.

For the back, I put in a mote to catch the juices.
