Made this cuttingBlock for a client.
It took 3 boards, 4 feet long pieces of Walnut, Maple and Cherry.
I gave her a link to all the lumberjocks cuttingboards to see what sort of pattern she would like.
With help of Degoose his tutorial managed to build it.
Measurements are 17.7in length x 12.4in width x 3.9in high
Finished with 1 coat of Tungoil.

Some construction pictures;

Thanks for watching!

That is fantastic. Excellent choice of woods, great precision on your cuts and the depth is wildly impressive.

Damn. That is one gorgeous board. I can’t even imagine what the glue-up procedure on something like that would be, even with the pictures. Seems to me like it would slide all over the place.

Thanks alot! I have to say Mad, this is only part of the story :) Glueing the 3 parts together went pretty smooth. I glued the sides not too thick but just enough, then put 3 bandaids 3 times wrapped around the segments.
If parts where uneven here, i could still press them against the flat board i was working on trying to even them.
Putting the segments together was alot harder, parts where sliding, even when i forced them back down a couple of times. Also had some gaps. But after planing and sanding, and filling gaps up and pushing extra glue in i think it worked out :).

I have to imagine that you could take a lot of the pain out of it with a bunch of half-cut pieces set down on a piece of ply to use as a gluing base.


Once I’m working again I’m going to give this a shot.

Almost 4” high! I bet the thing weighs enough to not move around while using. Nicely done.

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)
