SCRAP CUTTING BOARD EDGE GRAIN

I had a bunch of cut offs from other projects so I used them for a cutting board. Walnut, Honey Locust, Red Leaf Maple, Red Cedar. It’s very satisfying to use the scrap pile like this. I have a lot of small scraps that I’m thinking of gluing up in sheets and using for a small box. It’s also all edge grain to get a good thickness.

Beautiful board. I really like the colors. What did you use to sand it?

I used a random orbital sander with 80/120/220/320.

Cool. I don’t have a drum sander, but I do have an orbital, so maybe one of these days I’ll try it. Sadly, too many non-woodworking things taking up my time these days. Thanks!

Nice! I have made several boxes from glued up strips of scrap like this board. Do you have a planer?

Steve, I thought you did. Flattening these with only a RAS would be a pain unless your glue ups are a LOT better than mine!

Great inspiration Steve! I’ve been feeling sorry for myself because I haven’t been able to buy any wood lately. I’ll have to check out my scrap supply to see if I can make one of these. Thanks!
P.S. My regular job seems a lot worse when I don’t have a project to come home to!
