Cutting Board FAIL

After cutting my glued up strips into strips and flipping them I realized my planer was not planing evenly on both sides. So the board could not be glued together and could not be fixed. Thought I’d share this to humble myself and let others know that failures do happen to most of us.

Failures happen to all of us. Just think of it now as “Designer Firewood”

Today I created some “designer firewood” on the lathe

You need another avenue for that stuff… Like pen blanks for turning custom pens.

Funny, just finished burning the remains of my most recent failure. Love the smell of curly walnut during combustion!

Bullethead took the words out of my mouth.
It makes a pretty fire though!

ahhh, get out of there. The glue you used is no doubt is loaded with carcinogens.

oh no! not in the fire! It couldn’t have been that bad! Sometimes the fun of the failed project is the recovery or the repurposing of whatever it was which turned out unexpectedly.

Btw, it’s not too late. Even the ashes from the fire can be used to clean your blades!

But just look at the quality of the flame. Better wood = a better fire.

Don’t think of it as failure, think of it as BTUs. I’ve burnt projects before. It can be sort of – therapudic, out of sight and out of mind and ready to start anew. Thanks for sharing what the rest of us wouldn’t admit to.

Thanks for the support… I do hope to try again, but maybe failures are better since I think I’ve got more views and comments with this firewood than anything else! LOL

I looked at all your projects…Outstanding… Now if I just had room for a wood burner…that looks nice and warm
