« Part 5: Finally.... Part 6 of End Grain Cutting Board LJ Class 006 series Part 7: Fairly straight forward??? »

For some, the end grain board is fairly basic… so just as a little variation I have made another… with bevel rips of 30 degrees and 15 degrees…

I have cut some slices on the end of each to show…

The outer pieces have bevel rips on one side… at 30 degrees…

The Centre piece has rip bevels at 15 degrees…

So that means the remaining two pieces have bevels of 15 and 30 degrees…

I leave it up to those who choose to make this one, to decide how wide the rip cuts on each board will be to achieve the desired width…Give you some thing to think about… have fun…

Wet with mineral turpentine to show the colour of the end grain… gotta love that Huon… and the Camphor is pretty spectacular too…

This is just a quick dry fit… you can see just how tight the joints are going to be…

Well that’s it for the intermediate part… all the rest will be similar if not the same as the beginner board…

Sorry no video… needed a rest… that video stuff takes a lot of time…would be ok if that was all I did.. but as you know I am growing a beard…LOL

You’re growing some face fungus?

Great looking idea, will have to be careful while clamping, but should look great when finished. Thank you
for sharing and giving us another idea to play with.

OK I finished my Island build with that countertop (phew!) so I will have to catch up so I can play too!

This design would certainly be prone to slipping upon glue-up, but I’m sure Larry will advocate the use of top and bottom cauls to prevent the potential for slippage.

I like the variation here.
