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?  😋

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? 😟

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. 

 

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.

    • Mmm mm Thanks!!!!!!!!
    • your package went in the mail today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Figured I'd loop back on this with an update.  I ended up getting the Weber Spirit 3 burner.  Picked it up at Ace Hardware.  Its the same price everywhere ($449) but Ace will assemble it, deliver it, and haul away the old one for no charge.  Bought it Saturday morning had it sitting on the back patio by 3pm that same afternoon.   I ended up looking at a lot of grills including many brands of gas grills, pellet grills, and some charcoal grills.  There were some other gas grills that I liked, they looked to be made solidly from good materials and they came at a decent price.  However, they all lacked a decent warranty.  The webers use less stainless steel than some of the others and I'm not 100% sure what the china production will do to the quality and longevity of a Weber but they do come with the best warranty that I saw.  I believe grates and flavorizer bars have a 5 year warranty and everything else has a 10 year warranty.  Customer service and part availability was also a big selling point.  Weber parts look to be easily available and if you do end up having to replace the grate, flavorizer bars, and burners it will only set you back $150 which should get you many more years out of the grill.    I let my almost 3 year old son pick the color since he came with to help pick it out.  I couldn't argue with his choice of red.  It is clearly the fastest looking grill, now I just need to add a racing stripe. 
    • Saturday morning I was able to put my tag on a nice bird. If I did no get to put some scouting time in I would of moved too fast. I knew these bird was going to show up but he never made a peep on roost or the ground. I was able to call in the hens with him following. The hens yelped twice on the ground and that was it. Had other birds gobbling but I knew this guy was around. It was him with 3 Jakes and 3 hens that pretty much stayed by themselves and nothing to do with the larger group of birds. I was able to see him the Saturday before opener and trail cameras showing he was coming through around 720 each morning. I shot him at 7:15 plan worked out great. 20 Gauge is becoming my favorite gun for turkeys. He was just a couple oz’s shy of 24lbs. double beard 11inch, spurs 1inch. Some big birds dropping. My dads was 25lbs and Protourbait above 24. Might head back to NE this weekend see how the week goes. I have WI left for a couple tags.
    • I personally don't use hens often.  When I do she's in a breeding position near a strutting tom.  I usually go jakes of various postures or no decoys.  I like to keep them guessing where that hen is at.  I've had too many mature Tom's hang up, strut and gobble until the real hens show up to escort him away when using just hens.
    • What would be the reasoning behind just using hen\ hens decoys? To put the toms at ease? I usually use the standard hen / jake combo.
    • Nice!   Yep, that looks just the way I hope to find em!  Nada for me but maybe if I get some time in the turkey woods I’ll have some better luck.
    • That's one cut I need to do on the pellet smoker. Everything so far has turned out real moist and tender,  I'm guessing since the door seals up so tight. I prefer as well to slice that day, the leftovers can go in the crockpot for shredding.. I better go get one.
    • Num that looks awesome. Bet the carcass would boil up to make a mighty fine tasty soup too!
