Well my 2nd attempt at a cutting board is almost done I am in the finish stage now. I made this one roughly 2 inches thick out of som scrap walnut and maple. I jointed the edges with my router table and then borrowed Jim Jakosh’s jointer to flatten the faces for a near seamless glue up. I first glued 4 pieces together and so on. until I had 3 sections. Then I used biscuits to join the sections together. They were almost perfectly flat, had a few high spots, that I sanded with the belt sander then did a round over on the top and used an roman ogee for the bottom. Will post it as soon as I complete the finish.

Just thought I would give an update

I agree with Mike. I have yet to join the cutting board club but I do find other members posts inspirational.
