Hi everyone, I want to share my cutting board project inspired my Spalm. When I first saw Spalm make the 3D cutting board I knew I wanted to give it a try. Much credit goes out to Spalm and his willingness to share his knowledge to the community. I really enjoyed the project and will make other versions in the future.

I had enough parts to make two boards. 13”x17”x2” thick and 15”x20”x2” thick. I added the straight grain walnut, maple, walnut border with 5mm dominoes to help with alignment. Does anyone see any issue with the straight grain border glued around the endgrain? Any inputs would be appreciated. Thanks.

I predict the miters will open eventually.

Thank you for your thoughts, if it does separate then it will be an easy fix and also a learning experience. Thanks.

Nice looking cutting board. I see 2 possible failures, and both have already been mentioned.

The boards look great – but I agree with others. I think if it were me, I’d go ahead and remove the edging before the issues occur.

You did a great job on the design – it looks fantastic.

Thank you for all the inputs, I will keep the border and wait to see if it separates. I’ve been doing a lot of reading and what I glued together is actually face grain to face grain that one of the face grain is rotated 90 degrees and not end grain to face grain as I stated. Time will tell, thanks.

The boards look great!

But…

You should be aware of the Panel of Doom—- which is what you may be creating.

Thank you for the photo, I will make my next end grain cutting boards with end grain border trim to minimize the panel of doom.

Have your say...
