This is my first post, but I have heavily relied on the information you all have provided to improve my amateur skills in the wood shop. Starting out my first board (1st pic), i used walnut/maple and used…white elmers glue. Only after I finished my glueup I read about my big mistake. Funny thing is the board is still held together and its been used for about 6 months now.
Second board was mahagony/maple and was a gift to my mother in-law. She liked it so much she hung it on her wall and refuses to use it…
Third board was cherry/walnut/maple/walnut/cherry/walnut/cherry/walnut/maple/walnut. I used cutting board designer to make light work of the design flaws. This board is our most used in the kitchen because its just the right size.
The biggest thing I’ve learned from my wood working, is I prefer to not have the corners/lines meet up because if I make a mistake (and I do), its hard to fix them. I prefer the offset patterns because like on the third cutting board, the only line I need to watch or can look at, is the very center 1/2” walnut piece.
