I saw the post & “How to do it” for this design posted on LJ a while back and added it to my bucket list, thanks Sinister for sharing. This is certainly a “Sinister” project, as I have always said a cutting board is just a few pieces of wood glued together, LOL Any way another learning project with almost every step of creating this fine board, the woodworking steps are pretty basic but that glue up is a stress out even though I did the final glue-up in 2 separate phases. I am very pleased with the project even though as always it has a few minor oops that no one else has even noticed so I am good with that. The woods used are Paducke, Walnut, & Hard Maple pulled together with Titebond III. The finished dimensions are just under 1 1/4 inch thick & 11 1/2 wide 18 1/2 long all finished with Watco Butcher Block Oil. Thanks for looking….........................Jack

Nice.
I just love that design.

The story about how it came about is pretty funny too. It was modeled after a really ugly set of curtains at a place where Sinister worked. It makes a wonder cutting board though.

You done good,
Steve

That’s very cool Crashman. Kudos to you and Sinister. How did you keep the Walnut from bleeding on to the Maple when you sanded it?

Impressive! It makes me dizzy just thinking about gluing that thing together. It looks really great, though.

Have one question for you. How did you flatten the board? Drum Sander, planer, router sled, etc. it sure worked well.
