I’m wanting to make a cutting board for a freind whose last name starts with an “F”. I figured I’d make the board an end grain style and use walnut and maple. This will be a first endgrain and second cutting board project for me, so…....hope it goes well.
My question to you deal primarily with glue up and design and I guess the underlying question lies around how wood expands/contracts and may effect the glued edge joints. I suspect that since this will be an endgrain cutting board, there won’t be any issues, but not sure. Let me know your thoughts.
I layed out two ideas. both conceptual and no real dimensions associated with this yet. One design involves using all squared blocks to develop the board and letter. The other design involves using rectanglular shaped blocks to achieve the same letter.
What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance :)
