This is my favorite Cutting board and I’ve been wanting to try one. This is a project I owe directly to LumberJocks, and degoose Thanks! I had a lot of fun making these up and it was a real lesson in accuracy mostly cutting on the crosscut sled. They are roughly 12” square and are made from Curly Hard Maple, Walnut and Cherry. I can see how the combinations of wood could be endless and I will probably change it up on future boards. Helpful tip: It took Two 30” glued up strips of the Maple and Walnut and one Cherry to make one board (I ended up with enough for three so I went a little over board). The first board I did had a few tiny gaps so I fine tuned my sled and the next two came out tight and nice. I used a homemade thin strip jig to rip the HM and Walnut I got the idea here Thanks David my jig was a little cruder. Glue up consisted of 16 bar clamps, one bottle of Titebond III, and six beers all in honor of the Chairman! Turns out there is a simple way to glue these up but I just had to make it difficult for myself.
