You know how it is when you can’t get something off your mind. Well that’s how I’ve felt for a while about these large cutting, pizza, bread boards! It seems like I see them everywhere.  So when this months power tool challenge rolled around I decided to make some. Be sure to check out all the power tool projects at the bottom of the post!

I had a 1″ x 8″ board just begging to become a pizza board or as I’m using them as a serving piece. I painted mine, these are purely decorative. Don’t put food directly on them.

I love the real deal! Aren’t these gorgeous. I saw these on ETSY and of course they’ve sold. Just added – find some awesome wood (to make some like these) on my shopping list!

  1. 8′ – 1″ x 8″ common board
  2. saw – I used my miter saw
  3. Jig saw – I used my Rockwell Bladerunner
  4. Kreg jig for pocket holes
  5. 1″ 1/4″ Kreg Screws
  6. pencil and round object for drawing curves
  7. drill
  8. sander
  9. sand paper
  10. dowel
  11. paint – Waverly Elephant or any Chalk type paint

Overview:

  • Measure and cut the 8′ board in to 4 – 24″ pieces. Attach 2 boards with 4 pocket holes, equally spaced. Make sure that 2 of the pocket holes are near the edges. Trace a round object near the edge of your board to create the rounded edges and the paddle handle. Draw a circle in the handle for hanging. Use your drill to create a hole for inserting your Bladerunner/jig saw blade. Guide the jig saw or Bladerunner saw around your board to make the rounded cuts.

Steps:

  • Cut the board in to 4 pieces at 24″ each. I used scrap wood, but you can buy 1 each 8′ long 1″ x 8″ board for this project.

Use the Kreg jig to create pocket holes - Construct a bench - Farmhouse bench plans at RefreshRestyle.com

  • Using the Kreg Jig – create pocket holes on the back of the boards, I did 4. Two spaced in the center and one on each end. I didn’t glue my boards but you can. Just add wood glue along the edge and use 1″ 1/4″ Kreg screws in each pocket hole to attach two of the boards. Repeat for your other 2 – 24″ boards. Now you have two large boards ready to create rounded edges.
  • Use a round piece of sand paper and the top edge of a trash can. Use anything you like to create your rounded edge shapes. Align your template and use a pencil to trace.

  • Cut around your pencil marks to create the rounded edges and handle at the top. I used my Rockwell Bladerunner table saw. It’s light, compact and it’s easy to handle. You could use a jig saw.

Pilot hole for jigsaw

  • For the handle of the bread board, I hand drew a circle or something that resembled a circle 😉 Use a very large drill bit to make a pilot hole. Lift the guard of your Bladerunner, place the drilled hole over the blade and cut around your pencil line. You can also use a jig saw for this.
  • Improvise: For sanding, I wrapped a piece of sand paper around a dowel. This works great for rounded areas.
