Ispired by the amazing chopping boards I’ve seen on LJ I thought I’d try my hand at a smaller scale project. The plan is to reproduce the pattern above (on the left) from purple heart, maple and padauk making a 15mm thick board from which I can cut some discs to make an earring holder. To give some idea of scale the padauk peices are 10mm square and the purple heart strips 38mm long. I’ve cut the most of the peices and squared all the edges. My questions is, do I try gluing it all up at once or do it in small sections which I can then glue together to make the full peice? My feeling is that trying to do it all would mean a lot of glue joints on such a small scale could be tricky.
I was going to use Titebond III as I do for most things, would this be best for this application?
All suggestions appreciated.
