Making bread/kneading boards

I had the page on this subject but I lost it after I signed up for this site. My question is,what equipment do I need to make a really good board? I'm not totally inept with wood working, I just haven't done it in years and it wasn't my equipment...so I need some good advice but please, don't laugh. I can do it I'm sure, it's just the equipment I'm at a loss for. Thankyou...robertmitchell1954@att.net

    Saw, planer, joiner, drill, clamps.

    Edit: I am thinking cutting board.

      Do you have the space and money for the tools? A Boos board is a little spendy until you consider the cost of the equipment to make your own. One $100 cutting board or how many $100's to make one?

        I have the space and I'd need to work on the money...I was half thinking of making them and selling them. Only thinking at this point as I'm not sure if doing something like this would be profitable.

          With all the equipment needed, I doubt your would break even selling them. If you have the passion for woodwork, then go ahead and do it because it's was you enjoy and profitability is secondary issue.
