These are the first two cutting boards i have tried, the first with a handle was intended to be a rectangle board how ever after i planed the board down to size i notice multiple cracks in the wood, so i decided to change the shape. over all it went well. The second board went well just a bit of a long waiting process between each gluing.

Nice looking boards, love the stark contrast in the wood types…

Sometimes what we plan for isn’t what we end up with :o)

I am not a big fan of cutting boards because everyone is making them. The boards I like are those that stand out from the others, and the first one does that. The colors and the design really work for me.

Good boards. I like the first one especially, pattern looks familiar somehow. Excellent post.

Very nice.

I’ve done some boards like your first board. You’re forced to do some end grain to end grain gluing. I added some biscuits because end grain to end grain worries me. Did you feel a need to add biscuits or anything else to further strengthen the glue joint?

Actually I didnt, I find the end grain to end grain with glue seems to hold well, Just made sure i had the glue on heavy, even and on both surfaces that come together. Also I leave the boards in clamps for 24 hours. Have you had issues with the end grain glue before?

Have your say...
