Double Sided Butcher Block Board. One Sided is all Mahogany and the Other side is Checker Maple and Mahogany. I enjoyed building this board because it challenged me to find new techniques to achieve what I wanted to do. The Last Picture is of the clamping process. I pretty much used every clamp I had in the shop! Thanks for looking!

Very nice. How come you only went with mahogany on the back side?

The reason I went with only mahogany on the back side was for something different. I think it looks more formal. This one came out so well I am thinking about designing and building another one!

I glued the two sides together by wrapping similiar size scrap wood with plastic and than clamped them together. The main clamp I used was my rockwell floor clamp! I allowed it to stay clamped for close to 48 hours just to make sure it would hold!

I forgot I took pictures of the clamping process. The last pic is what I did to clamp both sides together.
