Trying my first ever “basket weave” cutting board. What do you do when the cutting board glue up is a total disaster? Lemonade from lemons!! Cut the only good parts into “coasters” , sand and finish them with mineral oil!!! Who knew? Snatching victory from the jaws of defeat!

When I took the board out of the clamps yesterday evening, I discovered that I had “misglued” (is that a word?) two of the pieces that were supposed to look like they went “under” the others…and they went “over”. I guess I was in a hurry to get them in the clamps before leaving for work. In any case, I kinda’ like the “matching” coasters.
Now I have to attempt another of the basket weave cutting boards and pay closer attention.
Thanks.

Reminds me of when I blew up my first end grain board in the planer. Nice save!

i actually made a few of these (intentionally) from left over pieces to be used as trivets.

We usually aren’t artists until we screw up. Then instead of assembly, it becomes art. I have some 6×6 3D trivets that were supposed to be a 12×12 cutting board.
