So here are the next two. Also thought I’d throw in a picture of the Arteest’s pallet.

Looks like some pretty porus endgrain in the second picture …is it Oak ?
The design of your boards is very nice .

Hey Tim -
Nice work – I see a bunch of Christmas presents rolling out -
Do you use Titebond like Marc did? All the boards I have done I have used plastic resin glue for the better water resistance, since I never can be sure that someone won’t let it soak in a sink of water etc.

The pictures are lousy, but you get the idea. Yes, the oak endgrain on the third picture is really interesting. I used Titebond III on some of the boards and Titebond II on others. I followed Marc Spagnuolo’s recommendations. What are the pros and cons of plastic resin v. Titbond glue?

Tell me about those clamps in the background. I don’t think I’ve ever seen them.

They are called 4-Way clamps. You can get them at Woodcraft, probably other stores also. They can be hard to manipulate so I clamped the bottom part to the bench so the whole clamp would not move when I set the top clamp in place. The setup worked pretty good but I’ve been trying to figure out an easier way to affix them to the bench. I had system set up where I could rip some pieces, apply glue, and set them in the clamp. When they were done cooking I took that piece out and replaced it with a new one so I could keep moving boards through the clamp process. The clamps work real good on panel glue ups like table tops and such.

I find some of the most interesting things by looking at the background in the various project photos. Hope this helps.
