Topic tags/keywords: gluing glue joining end grain

I want to do some internet research about the techniques of gluing different woods together much like you would for a cutting board. My question is what do you call the technique? I know it’s a duh! question but I can’t seem to come up with the right term in this old brain of mine.

Depends on what you’re trying to build really.

I think the technique is called “gluing”.

Smart ass answer aside, try something like “gluing dissimilar woods”. That yielded several discussions when I tried it.

Fridge, That is part of my problem. I know I have an idea for a toothpick holder. But I have some other vague ideas I would like to apply the technique to. I’m thinking out loud here: I want to glue up some 1/4×1/4×6 pieces then crosscut them, turn them 90 degrees and glue them back together. When done I would have grain going in every direction

Is “laminating” the word you are looking for.
