Walnut and Maple, ripped, jointed, glued (Titebond 2 of course) in quarter sawn orientation to minimize wood movement.
11-3/4” x 16-1/2” x 1”. Finished with Mineral Oil.
Now I’ll have a cutting board big enough to carve that 20# turkey next time!

Nice cutting board.

Titebond #2 is water resistant … titebond #3 is waterproof and has a longer open time.
Just saying.

So you don’t think T2 will last?

I think TB2 will be ok for the cutting board. It’s not going to be soaking in water.

I would just use TB3 when gluing up multiple pieces at once since it has a longer open time.

I looked all over this and I cannot find any borings on it anywhere!

Nice CB if if you don’t think so!

Thanks guys. It’s actually my first cutting board, as easy as they seem to be.
Actually now that I have a jointer that works, it’s a lot easier than it would have been before. And if you don’t have proper clamps, then the glue-up doesn’t go so well either.

And glad to know that the T2 will work ok. I’ll keep the T3 in mind next time. I did have to pull apart the first three pieces to re-apply glue because there was very little squeeze-out and I was worried it had cured too quickly before assembly. I was probably saved by the fact that the weather wasn’t really warm.

Nice board! I use T2 all the time for my cutting boards. I water it down a little to increase open time. Never had an issue or complaint!

Beautiful work. I was thinking of making one myself, but adding a moat and well for all the drippings
