Food is such an important part of my life. I am always in the hunt for new recipes and restaurants. Unfortunately, I haven’t had much time to cook or eat out (proper dinner) and hence I decided to dedicate this week’s project to my love of food.
I made a Swiss cheese wheel! I initially thought about first forming a piece of wood into a round shape before dividing them into five slices. However, I realized that parts of the wood will be lost in each cut and hence I wouldn’t be able to put them back into a circle in the end. Therefore, I traced five 72 degree halves with a protractor (not sure what the shape is called) individually.
I then used the bandsaw to cut them as close to the tracing line as possible and sanded them to the exact angle and arc.
Moving on, I used drill press to create cheese holes.
For coloring, I painted them with two different yellow acrylic paint (dark on the outside and light on the inside).
And….here comes my Swiss cheese wheel!
