Maple, cherry and walnut made from one big glue up. Theese had to be as close to identical as possible so as not to cause trouble in the family.

Keeping family happy is a challenge by itself. I usually fail at this.
Good looking boards though

Looks great. I was working on some cheese slicing boards this week end and forgot to plan propely for the slicing arm so I ended up with some designer firewood. Likely I can savage some of it. The boards look awesome I may use your pattern to remake the slicers.

Hey Albe have you considerd putting feet on those cheese boards and calling them trivets ?

Doordude thank youA1jim thanks alsoWiser this was a single glue up starting with two inch thick stock, I used the two three four three method that I learned here on this site from Mclean Va . And that simply means that the first board is two inches wide the second is three the third is four and the fourth is three inches wide. Glued together in a set long enough so that when I cross cut them I had enough to put three boards together and glue them up. I hope this helps and please feel to pm me if I can help more.
