Charles,

How wide is that cutting board? Once you clean the dried glue off, are you going to hand plane it flat, or run it through your Delta planer?

Hey Charles…..Following your blog and like what I see! It’s good to see all of the precautions you are taking for safety, glasses, hearing protection, push sticks. That maple looks like it has a lot of figure. A tip…..use the cheapest wax paper under your glue-up to protect your saw table. It’s also good to use some under the clamps so they don’t stain the wood if they come in contact with the glue. What are you going to use for finish? I have used mineral oil in the past, cheap and easy to get. Keep the blog coming!

Take your time when you plane it. Can’t put it back once it hits the floor! Looks good.

Looking good. For a good tip on glueing up the pieces flat check out the Woodwhisperer’s page. It will save you a lot of time planing and is easier to scrape the glue off.
