the board is finished in the meantime. I attach all pictures I have on hand.
Let me give you some more details:
As I said, the board should cover the steel surface of a Teppan Yaki grill. It will be used as a cutting board like the Japanese chefs do.
Hinoki is a very soft wood and has extra anti-bacterial characteristics. We have decided not to treat the wood in any way.
Working the wood is a fantastic experience – not only because it can be worked easily, but especially due to the smell of the wood. After a few plane strokes, the workshop is flooded in this cypress flavour!
As you can see from the pictures, the board has nothing fancy – it is special on its own and pure, it matches perfectly to the kitchen.
Why no wax or oil? Because Japanese chefs don’t. The surface will get rough by the time but a plane will take care of it.
It took me a like 15 hours for arranging the CAD plans. The actual wood work was completed in 4 hours.
It has now been actively used for 4 months and the board has neither bended nor lost a bit of its beautifulness.
Costs for the rough board including shipment: 250 EUR
Looks like I can only attach 4 files per post, so I add one more post.
If you have any questions, let me know.
Best regards, Thomas
