Had to make one of these for own use as well. From the first one I had learned that it pays to leave some sticks longer than others for less problems in the planer after the first glue-up.
(btw, those in the picture are not the glues I used for this project, in case somebody wonders their water resistance…)

Nive CB, what kind of wood did you use.

Thanks for your comments. The woods are mostly walnut and elm, and there is one (the largest) strip of oak. I left the maple (which I had in my first board) out to have less contrast. those are the only hardwood scraps I have so far, and I think I have to get further with my “real projects” before I have enough for another cutting board…other than that, I will be using “non-scrap” for a cutting board come Christmas…

Have your say...
