Soccer Ball Cutting Board
This one-of-a-kind cutting board project is like cutting out and assembling the pieces of a puzzle while following the soccer ball design provided. It consists of 1/4″-thick walnut and maple segments that you cut to shape and glue to the top of a 3/4″-thick maple base using a shop-made glue-up jig. You then cut and sand the soccer ball cutting board to either 8 1/2″ diameter or 10″ diameter, depending on your preference. Round over the edges and add four ball feet, if you desire.
The plan provides the needed patterns for the ball segments. However, if you want to make several soccer ball cutting boards, consider purchasing a template set for the desired size or sizes. (See the Buying Guide in the plan.)
