Another cutting board. I am getting much better at getting them flat and equal on the lamination. This is very important to me, because I don’t have a planer and I have to sand them level by hand, if they are not level after lamination.

Hi David,
Nice looking board! What is the best way you have found to get it flat during the glue up?

I make sure to cut the height of each board on the table saw at the same time at the same setting so they are all cut approximately the same height. Then I use cowls(sp) and clamp across the boards. For some reason even though I do this I still have one or two boards that are not exactly the same as the rest, but they get pretty close.

Well you have definitely got it figured out. Nice looking board. I like the color and the grain pattern. Keep up the nice work.

David, your attention to the details is evident in that your sanding to level is minimized because of the care in measurement of the pieces. Great job!! Each accomplishment just makes the future efforts better.

Thanks, I just struggle with cutting all my pieces equal, because I have a crappy table saw. This is it LOL. Hopefully, I will get a better one someday.

Great looking board! Attractive wood colors and the great finish really made the grains pop. Great job!
