Just a butcher block cutting board. 19×13x1.5 maple grown here in Ohio, I found an inexpensive supplier. Titebond III to hold it all together. Finished with four coats of Howard Cutting Board Oil. First real project of the summer. Going to need more clamps, the glue up could have been better. On the bright side I think I already have some one who wants to buy it; it would be my first sale!

Did you run it through the planer?

It looks like it came out pretty nice. If you are getting more clamps, I would recommend getting some pipe clamps or parallel bar clamps. F style clamps are handy but for something that substantial I think some nice bar clamps would have been easier. Just MHO.

I laminated strips of maple than ran it through my planer to flatten everything out. The final width is actually 12-3/4” (my planers max is 13”.) Ive got my eye on some 3/4” pipe clamps that I think I’m going to pick up today.
