I’ve recently started making end grain cutting boards.
My first board was made of 3/4” cherry I salvaged from an old dinning table.
I found three leaves at a flea market and cut them into 3/4×3/4 squares and started the glue up.
The results were not bad. I learned a lot from that project.
Next I got some live oak that had been cut down on my property.
The trees had been cut down more than a year ago.
I made 1×1 x 24 boards from that and again did the glue up.
After I had formed the final glue up and started finishing the surface, the board started warping.
I’m using Titebond II for the glue.
The warp is bad enough that I don’t see any way to save the project.
The wood was pretty dry, I think.
Any ideas as to what I might have done wrong?
