I am wanting to try some new cb designs and would like to try one with a border around it. How do I go about doing that on end grain? Maybe it’s easy and I’m just not figuring it out in my head, but I can’t seem to get a grip on how to do it

Thanks

Tongue and Groove, Splines, Biscuit joinery, dowel, pin nail and glue.
For cutting boards I would probably use biscuit joinery. It’s a lot faster than T & G, splines or doweling and just as strong as splines.

I’m trying one out now, got it in pipe clamps in my shop. I’ll let you know how it works out in a day or two.

If you mean like this, all I did was use the same width of the same wood at each end of each strip and make 2 strips of the same wood for the ends. HTH

use the end grain again in a different colour if you cross grain you can have cracking problems.

Ok, I got it in oil and have it sitting in the house. Will watch it for a few months and see if it doesnt explode.
