Walnut, ash, cherry. Mineral oil finish. I had to try this at least once! All I provided was the wood and the labor, i.e. I followed the Perosky blog directions exactly. Everything worked out well except that on one of the two boards the ash I used split on the ends under clamping pressure. This is why I am showing only one board—the other one is not so pretty.

Thanks for the Peroskywood blog. It is well done.

Nice job Rowdy. I am planning to make a few for Christmas presents as well. How long did it take you?

BTW – great color matching.

Rowdy, great Job. I broke a few that way also, they became smaller cheese boards. LOL. I started using solid pieces of wood with packing tape on them, (between the clamp and the cutting board) the full length of the piece, like a clamping gib, this distributes the pressure and prevents cracking. Thanks now I know what it feels like to be Larry.

That’s beautiful. I’ve never seen a cutting board like that. Can you provide a link to the blog that you mentioned, please? Thanks.

Looks great isn’t this the same design as Larry’s?

Matt, it is hard to say how long it takes to make one because there is a lot of glue up time involved. I suppose one could make one in three or four days, letting glue dry for 24 hours after each glue up and assuming you have enough clamps to go around. Of course you always wind up with two boards, so the yield is not too bad.

See, here is the link for this design: http://lumberjocks.com/poroskywood/blog/11021; You will see that this is part two of a two-part blog. Part one provides directions for making a very similar, yet different, board.

Jim, Perosky gives great credit to Larry for his inspiration and idea sharing. So where Larry stops and Perosky starts is subject to discussion, I guess. Hope I have not misrepresented the evolution of this board design. Anyhow, I followed the blog that Perosky posted because it is very detailed and easy to follow. Furthermore, it produces a board that is somewhat unique, imho. I think both Larry and Perosky deserve kudos for their efforts.

Hey Rowdy I didn’t say how cool I thought the board looks. Great Job. I was not accusing anyone of doing anything wrong just asking a question.

Jim, no problem, no harm done. I did not read anything negative or accusatory in your comment. Larry clearly is the professor when it comes to this kind of board design. I posted my followup to your question simply to emphasize that both Larry and Perosky have done a great job of sharing with the rest of us.

Nice job on this board… Would like to try it myself someday, time permitting…
I noticed the link you had listed is not working, has it been moved or updated?

Sorry that link did not work. Don’t know what the deal is since that is the address I originally picked up from the blog. Now the link I pick up from the blog is: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/22494. Hope that will work for you.

Finally, my public apologies to Porosky for not spelling his name correctly.
