Leftovers

Every holiday the question comes up; what to do with all the leftovers? I had these three pieces left over from the Giant Juice Groove board. They were 1 1/4” thick so I ripped each in half, a little proud of 1/2”, cut about 5 size ‘0’ biscuit slots along each joint, and glued them up. This thing sure is solid for being so thin. TWWs blend of GF Salad Bowl finish.

Nice little bread board to go with the cutter. Fantastic use of scraps!

Keep it up.

Very nice and very well done.

In our local woodworkers club there is disagreement about the use of biscuits on pieces such as this. Some feel they are unnecessary and add no additional strength. I feel that they do no harm and they can help with alignment. They also help with oily woods that don’t always glue up well.

Thanks all. richg… I don’t know. It seems like it is a lot stronger with the biscuits than without. I was just concerned because it is so thin and this being an experiment, and me not really knowing what I was doing, I just thought I’d give it a try. I plan to make more thin endgrain boards and cut them in to various shapes like breadboards.
