When bored, just build some boards…..The four posted above are mostly from shorts laying around…..just keep gluing stuff together and see what you get. No planning here and it shows…..

Maple, Cherry, Walnut, Yellowheart, Purpleheart, Padauk, Ipe and probably a few I forgot. Mineral oil finish.

Also a couple of hard maple boards from old gym floor… can’t go wrong with the maple…

Thanks for looking…..

Wow! those are wayyyyy cool.
I collect all my shorts in old beer boxes and eventually glue them together until it looks right, then call it a cutting board.
Some come out really strange, some don’t work at all.

Not a scrap wasted. Jeff you are the only guy I know that labels his scrap bins by the type of wood.
Jeff there are wonderful. Keep em coming.

Thanks folks…..appreciate it!

Yes Randy – the details for the Chefs board are being worked out…......appreciate the help!

Yes Dave…..we all have our little quirks…..the rest of the house is a disaster, but I do like to keep the shop organized….I’m sure there a word or two that describes this condition…. :^)

Looking good Jeff! That should have lowered your scrap inventory a bit…

Good looking batch of boards … board to the end?

The last bread board(s) I made were when I was in high school in the Junior Achievement program which was challenging and fun! The fun part was making a product; the challenging part was figuring out work around for a broken band saw (multiple TS passes and belt sander). The work there got me a scholarship for junior college!

Thank for showing us your project … how may have you made?
