Robb, I just wanted to post these comments here. I’ve posted also on the project page.

Thank you for the comments. You need to use some care when glueing up. The larger board can be glued in sections to make it easier. I usually just put a good amount of glue on, and glue all at one time. I flatten one side with 80 grit on a belt sander, and then run them through a wide belt sander. For the longest time a used a belt sander on both sides, and then a six inch orbital disc sander to about 150 grit. Be sure to take your time sanding with the belt sander. Make sure you flatten to the lowest point. If you don’t you’ll in up with some pits in the top of your board. Going to 150 grit leave a glass like finish on the end grain of the board.

I’ve been to Holland before. My wife is from Grand Rapid. Her family now leaves in Greenville. Nice area. I remember my were having the Tulip Festival when we were there last.

Thanks for the clarification, Greg. I really want to try one of these boards someday. It sure beats burning all that scrap, right? I’m really impressed with your work, especially the craftsman furniture. I just love that style.

That’s cool that you’ve been here before. This is a nice area, although I think I’d prefer your winter weather! I grew up about an hour south of Grand Rapids, in Hastings. I don’t think I’ve ever been to Greenville.

Robb, you work for Herman Miller? Do you know Neil Lamens of Furnitology101 (Furnitologist here). He is a major proponent of D.J. DuPree’s place of importance in the history of furniture and design.

Douglas, I’ve seen Neil’s posts here, but I don’t know him. DJ certainly was important to the history of Herman Miller; I’m not knowledgeable enough about furniture and design at large to say how much impact he had in that way. He was a kind and thoughtful man who truly cared about his employees.
