Large Pullout Cutting Board Replacement?

Recommended Posts

Where in the heck can I find a replacement pullout kitchen cutting board that is 24"L X 21 7/8" W X 5/8" thick in the northern burbs?  

I'm sure it will have to be custom made and No I don't have the tools to make my own. If I made it, it would be a chunk of 5/8" plywood and my wife an't going for that! 😠

 

May be the PFloyd can make one for wood cost for a buddy?  😋

I'm sure Purple will give you a deal but if not, you can always come over to my garage on a Saturday and we can put one together.

Is there no way to make a 3/4” cutting board work? They are readily available. 

 

Yeah I have saw some at 3/4" but this in an older home so it's only 5/8" for some reason? 😟

Thanks for the offer Dave.  I'm sure that I can order one on line, but thought I would see what the Pro's thought first.  No idea what the costs of a hardwood custom bread or cutting board that size would be?

What kind of wood are you going to make it out  of?  If you go to your local High school and  talk nice to the I.A instructor I would say they would get it done for you rather quickly, just for the price of the wood.

Stuff like that is done all the time in my district.

Hardwood lam I would guess?  I'm just a 2X4 guy! 😏

If you can get a 3/4" solid cutting board in the wood you want,  just have it surfaced down to 5/8".

Tear the house down and start over from scratch doing it right this time. 😁

 

i rarely do do cutting boards any more to be honest. Probably did maybe 1 in a kitchen in the last 3 years.

 

besides, all the cool kids have these now lol.

Shim up the countertops.

 

Buy a 3/4" cutting board and run it to a local cabinet shop and have them run it through the sander until it's 5/8". If you weren't so far away you could stop by here and do it

Shim up all the counter tops?  I think shes just getting a chunk of 5/8" plywood before I did that! 😁

Come on Purple, I'm sure you have lots of scrap wood, glue, clamps and a time saver sander. Just glue one up for him and UPS or Spee Dee it to him. I thought Christians would help one another out?

 

My offer still stands Leech. We could make something up in my little wood shop but to achieve the 5/8" thickness we would have to take it to someone else's shop any way unless after ripping the boards we ran them through the table saw on end with the blade as high as it will go to just over 5/8" so we could sand it down the rest of the way with my belt sander after gluing.

Supply and demand I guess.  If you can't get it anywhere else its probably going to cost you. 

 

Wonder what a local cabinet maker or wood worker would charge for something like that?

I just painted both edges of mine white, and I was thinking......."This thing hasn't even been used in at least 15-20 years."

I donate all my scrap lumber to an alternative school where the kids use it to make projects. 😇

 

if if he decided to make the trek south I could help him out

Thanks, I'll let the boss know and if she wants to spend the cash?  

 

I don't know if you are on Facebook but when I do a search of "cutting board" on Facebook Marketplace there are lots of people selling really nice looking cutting boards all over the metro. I'm certain if you look around you can find someone willing to build this for you for much less than the going rate.

    • Sous Vide... 😀 If not sous vide, then a dutch oven with a steamer thing. If it is too big for a dutch oven  with one of those folding steamer things then I would dig out my 18 quart roaster oven .  I think they even come with a rack.  
    • I think maybe Lund was too aggressive with the price increases in recent years of easy money or something.  When I bought my provee in 98, the difference between it and the comparable Alumacraft was only a few hundred bucks on a 20k package.   And the trim on the Lund looked nicer and more durable.     Some years later and I was at a boat show or something and the prices on ProVs had gone up and the difference was much more.      Presumably a deliberate decision to make ProV a premium product and insert a few other models  in there.   
    • Great call on the chuck, I'm still contemplating it, it sounds fun to give it a try though. At this point I'm leaning on pouring some smoke at it and trying a batch of pastrami,  just have to figure out a way to steam it in the end..
    • Minky, what lb test are you using?   I’m running 2 and 3 Micro Ice on pretty much everything I have for panfish.  I’ve been impressed with what it can handle along with its fish ability.  Pairing with the right rods helps a bunch too.
    • I had to do the same fix on my ‘Ol 96er.
    • Can you leave a propane tank on all summer or does that have to come off at the end of season
    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet.
