I’ve been asked to make some cutting boards for a place to sell. This is my first segmented board. I first started with the wood choices, Black Walnut, Maple and White Oak. I glued them in place and then cut to length of 8.5” x 16”. I waited 24 hours and then put the board through the planner a few times on both sides. Then I put the panel sled on the table saw and cut at 1.25” completely until none left. Then I stacked them dry on the clamps, and turned every other piece backwords to make the design. Folded them down to do the glue up and then re-clamped for 24 hours. Next day I re-planned the boards to thickness desired and then sanded starting with 100 grit and finishing with 320 grit. Routered the edges and used 3 coats of mineral oil. Let dry!
