Had a friend ask if I’d make him a cuttingboard for his new digs. Maple, hickory and walnut with a band of mahogany around the perimeter. Joinery skills are getting better with every one I make!

nice board but you may have some separation on the corners of your edge band if the wood expands,keep it well oiled and you may be ok.great mix of wood colors.

McFly, you seem to be doing good, clean work.

I respectfully and kindly ask you to take your skills up a notch. Stop making these face grain cutting boards. Not only will an end grain board last longer and be a better addition to someone’s kitchen, you open up endless design possibilities. All you’ll get with face grain boards is some series of stripes.

You can find tutorials on line. The process is quite easy when you see how it’s done.

Just a suggestion. I hope you’ll take it in the manner it was given.

McFly, you can make boards as attractive as you want without having to fight end grain, especially if you don’t have a large sanding unit.
check these out – they are all face grain and edge grain -take a look at some of my medeocre boards

I had considered dropping a festool domino in there to keep things together, but had a time constraint. If it ever separates, I’ll slice it down the glue line and add one then.

Funny you should mention kicking it up a notch. Noticed a board with a curved ribbon inlaid throughout the pattern. Gonna try one of those next.

Also mulling over a herringbone pattern just to mix it up a bit. Thanks for the push!

Cool stuff! I dig the multiple angle boards. Thinking of incorporating that into my next few projects.

Have your say...
