« Part 4: Lesson #1 Part 5 of End Grain Cutting Board LJ Class 006 series Part 6: A little variation... »

Finally I have made some progress on the first lesson…enough said… watch the video..

The finished component pieces ….shown at the end of the vid dry fitted.. [note that there are no gaps.. this will make for a good glue up..] have the following dimensions:

Outer… 65mm wide and 40 mm wide [2 5/8 in and 1 5/8 in]
2 Inner… 65 mm wide [2 5/8 in]
Centre .. 65 mm wide [2 5/8 in]
All pieces are dressed to 45 mm thickness [1 3/4 inch]
My timber selections were Golden Wattle on the outside with Huon Pine and Camphor Laurel in the centre.
More in a few days…

Many folks don’t truly understand the hard work and dedication it takes…........ To grow a fine beard like yours Larry….. Totally understandable…

All kidding aside great video bud….

You’re right. Push sticks are important. But it looks like you forgot something…like ear protection. Can you hear me now?

Nice video, Larry. I like the fact that you didn’t neglect the little pointers, like marking your jointed surfaces with a “J”, and showing the sideways pressure on the jointer to keep the board… err, timber, against the fence and held down at the same time. It was also nice to have a quick explanation of what we’re about to see happen, so in our minds, we already know the proper order of events, then you reinforce it with the video of you doing those steps in that order. And of course, the video wouldn’t have been complete without a little Larry humor up front!

Looking forward to the future installments to see your process in action.

And no shop is complete without a suitcase of XXXXGold holding the floor in place !!!
GREAT video , Larry…...High quality , just like the presenter : )
Looks like you’ve got a great shop and some fine equipment as well.
The beard looks good on you , my friend.
Looking forward to the next episode !!
