Yes that’s right just like many other new wood workers I made TWW end grain cutting board.
it is made from Lyptus and Hard Maple
Tung oil finish 2 coats
From this project, I learn the difference between cheap saw blades and good high end saw blades. And wow what a difference. when i first bought my table saw i knew it would not be perfect, but it was awful I could not make a strait cut due to cheap blade and fence. So i had to make a fence that didn’t try to move when i would make a cut. but shortly after that i realized that the blade that came with the table saw was the bigger problem
it was so dull that it was pushing the wood against the fence to hard and causing it to shift.
so tuning my table saw was fun.
I also learn the really short drying time for yellow glue. i had to scrape a massive amount of dry glue from a few of the pieces Also Fun..
ah and sanding. oh man i hand sanded the whole surface of both sides. i did not owe a orbital sander or a block sander at the time. this was sanded 100 to 320 by hand with a wood block. yeah took me two nights of sanding for like 3 hours each night.
well that’s pretty much it.
This was made about 5 months ago and was my second piece.
