Hey everyone,

I just completed a couple of cutting boards. The first picture is made with maple, walnut, sapele, purple hart, and cherry. It measures approximate. 10X18 (It was 12X18 but the strips shifted during glue up so I had to rip some of the rows down to get everything to line up.) The second picture is made with maple, walnut, and sapele. it is 12X18 and noting shifted during glue up.

Again thanks for looking, and feedback is always welcome.

Jay,

I’m looking to make my first cutting board. I was hoping to use small cutoffs that I have been collecting in a bucket, but when I look into the bucket the pieces are almost all irregular in shape. Did you use waste or cut your pieces from larger boards? Also wondering is there are any tricks you’ve usedin glueup to keep everything aligned and what you finished your boards with?

Thanks,

I Don’t use cutoffs for cutting boards I cut strips from larger boards. I use clamping culls to keep them aligned. As far as finish I start of with a 50/50 mix of salad bowl finish and mineral spirits. Then after it has fully cured I apply mineral oil

OK, I figured as much. Maybe I’ll use the cutoffs for grill fuel. Thanks for the quick reply.
