Cutting Board Storage


 We use a lot of cutting boards.  In we, I mean my Cooking Man.  I am lucky enough to have a Cooking Man.  You can probably buy your own on Ebay, but they are not cheap.  Bids happen fast and if you aren't sitting by your computer at the end of the auction, they will slip right through your fingers.  I was lucky!  I got mine for a song. 
I do enjoy to build though.  This was a quick little project, but necessary.  Our cutting boards were leaning up against the vent on the microwave. Here's my solution:

Vent needs to be clear of cutting boards.

I measured depth and height of opening.

I grabbed my roll of oak edge to laminate my melamine board.

Heat up a household iron.

Iron it on and let it sit to cool.  Sand edges flush and apply stain.

Install board using long finishing nails.

Insert cutting boards and go to Ebay to get your own Cooking Man.

Cheers!

  2. Awwe. Thanks Diane. It was actually such a small project but my time has been consumed with a bigger project that can't be blogged about just quite yet.

    1. I love new storage places too. They are sure hard to find in this old house!
