I’ve joined the cutting board group. Board is made from Purpleheart, Hard Maple, and Walnut. Size approx. 12” x 18”. The hardest part of the project was the glue up. I had to apply the glue to each individually piece. My saving grace was the glue up jig that I made. 2 X 4’s cut in half screwed at 90 onto an old counter top. I also made stand/feet out of Walnut with a gloss finish to display the board. Board was finished with “General Finishes” salad bowl finish with 3 coats on the bottom 4 on the top. My inspiration came from fellow Lumberjocks Tony and Dan.

Stunning board – you should be very proud of this one!

Did you think about, or actually use long setting glue for this one? Seems like the perfect application (excuse the pun)........

Nice choice of woods. It is amazing the change in colors after the finish was applied!
