It is very common for everyone to have wood scraps of different sizes and just turned out to become a boards cutting conventional to endgrain. I noticed that if there are angles involved in joining a wood with parallel grains will be stronger. The warping movement is not visible and the strength of gluing is increased. Unlike the crossboard gluing (or straight gluing…) crack will be present in some cases. Here are series of design that are so simple to make and gluing is also very simple using masking tape as clamps.
Just cut strips of wood and glue them together depending on your desire of color combination.
Cutting the stripes board on to an angle accross to any desired arrangement will create different geometrical design. Triangles can form pointed stars or polygon. Even a circle can be produced if thinner strips will be cut.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE SKETCHUP DRAWINGS OF POSSIBLE VARIATIONS USING THE CONCEPT:
RECTAGULAR to CIRCULAR
THE 3D RESULTS:
I AM JUST SHARING THIS DESIGN TO ANYONE WHO IS PLANNING SOME CUTTING BOARDS VARIATIONS. I KNOW THAT THE CONCEPT OF STRAIGHT LINE CUTTING AGAINST CURVE CUTTING WILL BE EASIER.
I like the RAINBOW and OGEE. I have already prepared strips and ready for gluing but I can only work on weekends probably starting May because I have several family afairs during weekends.
TILL THEN AND I HOPE YOU LIKE THE ABOVE DESIGNS.
