Maple, cherry, some really dark walnut, and purple heart. Being able to face joint now has saved me a lot of hassle with glue ups. This was just sanded to remove the glue squeeze out (I really need to go easier with the glue), no router planing required. I used a 1/2” round over on every edge (even the corners). No real thought was put into the pattern, I just worked with the stuff that was already cut up, but it came out cool

Jointing (on a jointer) the faces of the boards before planing so they are really flat. I used to just carefully plane the pieces but always ended up with one or two strips that had a tiny twist or cup. It clamped out with some pressure, but that extra pressure caused the glue up to shift a bit as well.

If you only make small stuff, check out my reviews. The little craftsman one is nice, but you are limited to about 30” long and 4” wide. I joint larger boards by hand, but it’s just too much effort for simple cutting boards.

Outstanding board Joe. A real treasure. Looks like a master made it. And of course, if the shoe fits.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

It is a great board. By “face jointing” do you mean that you run the end grain on your jointer?

NO!!!. I wouldn’t be able to see or type right now if I did that. I mean during rough stock prep. (something most people do anyway)
