We have had very good sales in cheese slicers and cutting boards. To that dnd I came up with this new design. I also made matching 12”x11” cutting boards.

Very nice. They look like a fun project to do.
Just exactly follow the cutting and drilling instructions on the cheese slicer website. Mine are 8” x 6”..

Recommended configuration and assembly instructions to create your own cheese slicer board:

  1. Choose material (wood or stone) 1/2 to 1 inch thick, at least 5-3/4 inches deep, and 7 inches wide
  2. Mark a spot 1/4 inch from surface and 5 inches from the front edge of the board
  3. At the spot marked in step 2, drill 1/4 to 17/64 inch hole drilled parallel to cutting surface, 3-7/8 inches deep; A 1/4 inch hole will give a tighter fit for the cutting arm; a 17/64 inch hole will give a looser fit
  4. Cut an angled groove 1/16 - 3/32 inch wide cutting groove, 3 inches from right edge, 5/8 inch deep in back, 1/16 inch deep in front; groove must fully intersect the hole drilled in step 3
  5. Insert wire into the groove so that one loop is located where the hole is drilled
  6. Insert the longer end of the cutting arm into the hole, passing it through the loop in the wire
  7. Turn the handle away from the board to tighten the wire
  8. Tighten the set screw into the metal bar
  9. Gently work bar either into or out of the base until the wires is aligned with the cutting slot

I just may have to borrow that design.
Do you leave your cheeseslicers flat on the bottom or do you put feet on them. something similar to these mushroom plugs?

I leave them flat and they work well. It is my way to avoid juice grooves and feet to keep from having areas that collect bacteria. One screw removed and you can sand them if needed.
