So this is a second cutting board made as a possible wedding gift. I always make two just in case. This one is maple,walnut and cherry. Pretty easy build hardest thing was glueing up the two 45 degree pieces. I used rubber bands and painters tape. The rubberbands had a 50% success rate they didn’t like the sharp edges of the hard maple.

WOW! That is amazing, AJ! And what was the reason this fell to second choice?

Candy the bride liked the other one better. No biggie to me this one will just be donated for charity auction. But I couldn’t make the choice so I had her tell me which one she liked more.

I do like the other one, and I’d be more likely to actually use it rather than this one. ;-)

I have lost hope on anyone using them every time I see one it’s just sitting on a counter unused still and still looking untouched. But I guess that means they look to nice to use.

Very nice. I would like to see how the glue-up goes.

Next time I will take pictures of the glue up. I glued up them up as 30” strips. Laid painters tape down on the table saw and laid the 45 degree strips on the tape length wise. Then spread the glue on both pieces on the flats and the miters. The tape makes it easy to keep the miter together I also rubbed the pieces after the I pressed them on the tape down the edge of the tablesaw wing to press the tape down to the pieces. Then it was just a matter of folding up
the miters and putting the square walnut piece in and rubbing it up and down the glue to make for good joint. Next was the rubber bands on the ends and in the center followed by more tape around the parts. Sounds like a lot of work but it was only about 10 minutes. Not including me covered in glue but I do get messy when it comes to glue.

Pictures, yes, please!
How big is this board?
Is there chamfer on the edge?

Desert thank you

Candy yes the edges have a chamfer it’s about ten degrees and up to the first full block on both sides. I don’t like the way hand holds look on cutting boards so I have been chamfering the last few and I have also stopped sanding them to a high grit. I’m now doing 220 on the top and bottom and a rough 100 on the sides after they are hand planed down. That leaves the edge more grippy for moving around with wet hand or so I think so far. On this one I also glued up half of it at a time and when I went to glue the halves together didn’t like the 3D look that it had with the light and dark looking like the light was making shadows from the top to bottom so it would only look right from one direction. So I flipped the bottom half and now it looks like the light would be making shadows from corner to corner. At least that is how it looks to me. Next time I will take pics of the progress I just forget about doing it when I’m in the shop.

Thank you Charles and nice new profile picture.
