I found this blog entry by dewoodwork http://lumberjocks.com/dewoodwork/blog/2597 (Thanks dewoodwork)
Used Hard Maple, Cherry, and Walnut. The design is awesome and the directions are easy to follow. The final glue up was tough in lining up the blocks so a few are slightly off. Thus “There is many a slip betwixt a cup and a lip” I think next time I might try to shoot a pin nail into each one to hold them in place. I think some of the movement happened after I clamped them. Also I think I need to buy a good set of parallel clamps for better control. It took me a weekend and produced four blocks. All in all it was a fun project and one I will try again, the design possibilities are endless. Now if we could just get the “Chairman of the Board” degoose to share a few secrets we could all have some real cutting board fun! I love my Mother, Happy Mothers day!
