This weekend I made 3 cutting boards. Fun to make and I want to make each one different. I think it makes for better gifts.

Nice looking boards, Ray! I’d be curious to know how they hold up to wood movement due to the cross grain glue up. Have you done some like that before?

I haven’t had any problems so far. Wait I did have one my Son-In-Law used the one I sent to my daughter then put it in the dish washer with steam dry. The board didn’t hold up too well. I’ve had some for over a year and they are holding up no complaints. The hardwood I use is all KD and dense. I’d never try it with any kind of softwood.

Because it is not very big, Not attached fast to anything the only stress would be contained in that small bias. Hopefully this was done with a biscuit joint to help with that. I don’t think you have a problem if you used kiln dried wood. By the way, I really did like the first one a lot. Really nice design.
