Rebuilt cutting board

This broken cutting board was dropped off by my daughter in our garage last Dec before we went south. I’m not doing much woodworking right now but I thought I’d give this old board a new life. It was in 6 pieces- someone had mistakenly put it in the dishwasher and all the joints came apart and they were very rough with all the grain raised. I thought it was maple so I made one new end piece out of maple for the one that was cracked almost all the way through. while I was at it, 3 pieces of walnut just happened to drop in between some of the boards. I lengthened the finger groove on the bottom side to cut out some of the remaining cracks.
I was going to make a whole new one, but this was a favorite of hers so I went this route to rebuild it. I’ll surprise her with it tomorrow. It is finished with Behandla salad bowl finish.

Sweet rebuild Jim….like the look of that walnut that accidentally fell in between the maple….sets it off bud. Nice job (as always) sir.

Do you remember the glue type of the first generation?

Wonderful restoration and New Life to an old friend!

What kind of glue this time? ... or did it make a difference… The dishwasher did it… LOL

Nice job!

A truly great restoration Jim. I’m sure she will love it. The walnut was an excellent touch. Great finish, great job.

Thanks for all the nice words, you all!. It was not much of a job but it means a lot to her.
Joe, I don’t know what glue was used the first time, but I used TitebondIII.

Pete, I’m used to that. I like figuring ways out of problems. That way , when they happen in the shop, it becomes another challenge that I like….......and I get lots of practice!!!!!!........Jim

It would have been a shame to throw it away. And her favorite re-lives. Nice rebuild.
