Here are some uses I found for hard wood shorts and scraps in the shop. They make great gifts.
The cutting boards are about 6”x9”X 1” and the plate is 12” x3/8”. I cut my pieces for the cutting boards to either 2 or 3” length. I would glue 3 to 5 pieced together at one time and using a cutting sled on my table saw trim and square off the glued up pieces as necessary to allow me to more easily add more pieces until I reached the desired size. Then I “re-sawed” the thickness to 1” on the bandsaw and was able to make two or three nearly identical cutting boards at the same time. Sanding was done with a drum sander, belt sander and orbital sander in that order. Finish is process walnut oil.
