Normite Lou, could you explain what you are doing in the pictures above and why. I know, I think, that you are pouring glue over the butcher block, but I don’t understand…are you doing this to seal it and gluing it up at the same time? :^\

Os- check out the video/slideshow – that pretty much explains it. I was a bit curious at first too!
Normite- if this is going to be an ongoing thing you should post it as a blog series and then when the butcher block is complete, post it as a (finished) project…
Looks good so far!

I think he had enough glue on it. Nice production and the project should be nice.

plugin won’t work on my Mac… I’ll have to get some tech support (son-in-law) working on this for me!
Love your attitude: “I’m having fun”. That’s what it should be all about!!
I’m looking forward to seeing the video.

Wow, neat idea. The cutting board looks great. I wish I had the time to make something like that.
Thanks for the idea on the video. I was originally going to blog my bunk bed project through picture, but now, the video idea looks good. Thanks for the great idea.

Hi Oscorner, yes, the first glue up was with grain, then the pieces are rotated 90 degrees and clamped.Next step: dry, sand, cut 12 pieces perpendicular to cross grain.

Hi Snowdog, yes I used Hard Maple and Walnut!

Hi RobH, I am not finished yet, Ive got dozens of projects going at once.Day 1 of the Butcher Block only took about 1/2 hour! I estimate it will take about 3 hours total. I will post actual time when the project is complete!
Actually, I did not have my video camera with me that day, I just took some digital stills and processed them in Pinnacale Studio Plus 10.7 as if they were a video. Pretty quick, it only took about an hour to sort thru the pictures, insert the ones I wanted, add text comments and a logo, music and BAM ~ video out!Actually I would call it a medium high res video slideshow!

Nice, Lou! I think it’s a great project and obviously well done.

i also made a maple and walnut cutting board, then read in a wood magaizine that walnut is toxic and should come into contact with food, thats why walnut shavings should never be dumped into a mulch pile. enjoy your project but use as decoration not a food prep surface.
