Prep/cutting board on my Lang 60

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Just finished replacing the prep board on my old Lang 60.  Used a piece of HDPE 1" 48X48.  Thought it was gonna  be to large, but decided it's always easier to cut it down if needed.  I had something similar previously that stated breaking down over 10yrs from UV.

The old board was 30X40 " and worked fine, but figured what the hay Whatasize it.  Board is mounted on the wood box.  I modified the box so that the side of it can be lowered to store wood and equipment with out having to remove the table.  Rounded the edges with a router and plan to cut some slots in the surface to put knives and tongs in so that they are out of the way.

HDPE routes pretty easy, an leaves a nice edge

Trial run just to test it out, turned out that it was not to big after all

Thanks all for your comments.  I really enjoy this Lang, but I checked out SmokinAls'  SV and really like the looks of it.  Looks like it is just right for when your just cooking for yourself and not a crowd.   Most of the time with the Lang, I just let everyone know i'm smoking an everyone brings their meat over for a smoke-arama.

Lots of room on that table for a poker game and beers as well!

 

Good luck and good smoking.

Very nice looking board now how about cutting a smaller hole in a corner for pushing off scraps into a waiting waste bucket. I have found that to be a great adition to a good cutting board/table.

Ice Daddy I am in southern Florida. 

Where did you get the Cutting board??

Great idea. Knife slots, and a whole for scraps is a great idea, I think.

I bought the high density polyethelene at http://USPlastic.com/.  They are in Ohio and are very friendly and helpful.  Go there online and you will see that they have just about everything plastic you could ever want.  I bought  the !"  48X48" piece just before price increase, a little over $200 with $50 ups shipping.  It weighted roughly 90 pounds.   I think the price now is $253 but not sure.  They have just about any thickness you would want, I wanted really thick piece.  You can probably find starboard or another marine grade poly down there cheaper that will work just fine.  I know that there are a lot of boat builder/suppliers in your area and they should have something that will work.  If I find one I will PM you with info.

McMaster-Carr also has sheets of HDPE. Looks like a 4'x4' sheet of 1" is about $208.http://www.mcmaster.com/#plastics/=fz2oft

I wanted to use this for our counter tops on a trailer build we are planning. Several of the group don't like the why this stuff looks after it's been used as a cutting board, all the cut marks tend to leave black streaks. Did you have that issue with the old one?

Not really.  It will show cut marks, but I think just about everything will.  Its easy to clean, clorox, pressure wash, and if needed can be resurfaced with a belt/orbital sander.  Hope this helps.

Looks great. You can never have too much prep area.
