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.
