Maple & Walnut, 18×12
I made this a couple of months ago – my first nice cutting board. I am happy with the way it came out even if it didn’t come out the way I intended. This was also my first experience at gluing up a lot of pieces at once. 18 didn’t seem like a large number when I started out! But once I got the glue on them and they started slipping and sliding… LOL Have you ever noticed the wood slides all over the place but your fingers stick to everything?
Originally, I was going to match the grain, putting it back the way it was when I cut the strips. Well, that didn’t work out. The next thing I was going to do was a couple of diagonal slices and flip the pieces. Then I noticed the two center slices were swapped. Oh well, few people would notice any of this if I did’t tell. So I don’t!! :)
Last picture is Angie passing through… I have a lot of projects to do before I run out of models to pose with them.
