Here the two of the first cutting boards that I have done. Learned a lot of lessons with these. Can’t wait to get started on the next set. These are gifts for my Mom and Grandma, however, the wife has told me that she is next on the list of getting one.
Woods were Maple and Padauk. Finished with 8 coats of Butcher-block Oil, Dimensions are 12” x 11” going to put rubber feet on the bottom.
Don’t over glue
Scrape the excess clue before it dries completely
Don’t use a card table for assembly and glue up!
I think I will biscuit join the next ones together after I build myself a nice flat and large assembly table. I had an issue with the boards staying aligned when I clamped them together, so I had a lot of sanding to get them all level. Thanks for looking.
