Just glued up tumbling block end grain cutting board. Thought I could just set up a square corner and start putting the 32 blocks together.
That did not work. Then started gluing a row at a time. Better but but not dead on. Ended up with 64th gaps in angles and edges.
1. can I prevent this? I know the angles and dimension were with in 12 thousands.
2. if gaps are inevitable, how do I fill for good look? Cherry, walnut and hard maple. Sawdust/glue maybe but this is cutting board.
I have glued up many angled long pieces with great success. 32 pieces all angled and nested were a challenge. Any suggestions?
