I’m getting the hang of the end-grain glue ups and finishing. Now I want to try a 3D type board. the question I have is about glue ups of angle cuts as in the picture below.

Titebond II or Titebond III - 15 replies

What’s the difference? Which do you prefer?I picked up some Titebond III my last trip to the store and other than being white and costing more, I have yet to see any real difference.

Isn’t there a way to use a jig against the fence of my table saw or on the cross cut sled to do tapers? I’d appreciate some help here. I want to venture out a little ...

I’ve noticed several cutting boards that seemed to be raised so the bottom doesn’t contact the counter. What ideas do you have for elevating cutting boards? I did see one (But of course I can’t find it now) that showed round rubber (white) feet attached with a screw to the bottom corners.

Biscuit joints on cutting board - 15 replies

Have you ever thought of making the face grain width a little wider and using Biscuit Joints for strength? This would allow for a thinner board with increased strength. I have some 15/16th inch pecan that would make a beautiful cutting board and I’m thinking of giving this a try. Any thought? The board shown here is obviously thin. I li...
