« Part 1: Teaching a class.. Part 2 of End Grain Cutting Board LJ Class 006 series Part 3: Excuses, excuses... »

Well, for all those who will be taking the End Grain Cutting Board 101 class….and so far have had over 50 responses…

A little heads up regarding timber… I have two similar designs that I will be making… a beginner board and one for intermediate woodworkers…

Both boards will require three different timbers… a light and a dark and one in between…

I will be going into the various timber selection and dimensions in the first lesson but for those who need to plan a trip to the lumber yard I hope this is of some help… just make sure that what ever timber you choose it is fairly tight grained and does not contain any spalting…..

Until later then…

Thank, Larry. Time to part with a few hard earned sheckels I guess. It goes against the Scot in me. (sigh)

I will go with bubinga, purple heart, and hard maple. I would prefer cherry to the maple but not sure it is tight grained enough. 8/4 stock I assume is alright since it is an END grain cutting board?

I’m probably going with, walnut, jatoba, and maple. I really like them three together.
