« Part 14: Day ?? Part 15 of 150 [Cutting] Boards by the end of September. series Part 16: Off Track ...Day # 50 I think. »

This post is about the 20 butter boards I have orders for.
\Finished work at 2.30 pm this afternoon and it is now 6.30 in the evening.
With the 5 in glue up yesterday and now is 23 ready… well ready for glue up… had a lot of fun cutting and ripping the Camphor and Rosewood.

These pics are of all the bits ready for glue up…this will be a two stage glue up.. first the main board minus the handle blank… Cut the curve after glue up and the separate to allow glue up of the handle.

This is the Coffee table in Queensland Red Cedar.. the timber was cut here in Caboolture in 1946.

Here is the flat pack of the entertainment unit in NGR… lol….Just the top base sides dividers and drawer fronts glued up and sanded with the new Jet 16/32.

You may see the wine bottle balancer I am toying with,.,. and some shots of the workshop.

This last pic is a special bookmatched Camphor Laurel and Queensland Rosewood..”Bagette Board” ready for glue up..
This one will have a small handle similar to the Butter board,....Hope you like this one ,Lee, and Lisa.

It gives me a headache just trying to figure out how you keep track of all the “Parts”, Larry!!
All of your work is fantastic, but that last one, the bagette board, almost leapt off the page at me! That one is absolutely Stunning!
You certainly keep busy! Outstanding Work…

You don’t have to hope I like it-
You know I love it. The wood grain is beautiful- especially bookmatched.
Looks like you’re running out of storage space for all these boards….

Do you joint all the cutting board pieces after cutting or are they glued straight off the saw? Also od you use paper joints where the handle will be glued in after rounding the end?

Larry you are the most industrious person I know. Keep up the good work, but don’t forget to take a break once in awhile.

Those boards in the first few pictures look a little small! Do they each count as a cutting board!!!!!!
Larry, your work is so unusual that numbers should not count.

‘sho is sweet !

that camphor is gorgeous .

they are dozing and burning it as weeds ?

harvest it , we (LJ’s ) will buy it like we did
with the rosewood .

A great collection of new boards. If you didn’t have the work centre then you would be missing a work table.

The last board is just beautiful.

How long are the days down under , Larry ? Surely more than 24 hours !! LOL
You have quite a nice variety of species and combinations displayed here.
I like your Cedar table as well. Did you turn the legs on her ?

Len I found the legs at a Flea Market for 10 bucks each..
eddy keep at it.
Karson… one more feature of the Torque Work Center… extra bench space..
Ellen small or large.. still work involved.. I may have to count some of the boards that I have sold in the 150.
Master Broda… bandsaws are fun..
Mike I will sand the parts with the Jet 16/32 prior to glue up and yes a paper glue joint between the sides so I can separate them and glue in the handle after cutting the top curve.. the bottom curve is cut after the handle is glued in.,
