This is my formal application TWW cutting board club. I used Marc’s plans and ideas. If you read my one and only blog entry you can read about some of my woe’s. Boards all together came out well. I guess I’ll just have to make more boards as gifts once I am able to use my handheld belt sander that I’m getting this Christmas.

Nice boards.

So let me get this straight. You have no belt sander yet and I guess no wide belt sander (Performax type). Then how did you get these flat?

That’s a lot of work!

You do know about CB Designer for more types?

By the way, purpleheart and maple is not inexpensive. Has anyone figured out how much one of these cost to make?

They are flat after a very careful glue up, sanding with 40 grit and up, as well as using a friend’s homemade sandflea type sander. I spent ~$180 on materials. I do have scrap left of the cherry to make a couple of boards if I wanted with another wood. I have some purpleheart left to turn a bowl. As well as some other bits and pieces. I bought S2S lumber because my local Amish sawyer didn’t have any 8/4 maple or cherry.
