Cutting Board: How To's #2: Zig Zag Cutting Board Patterns - Inspirational

10-05-2010 09:19 PM by McLeanVA | 28 comments »

I was absolutely overwhelmed by the positive response to my Zig Zag How To blog post yesterday, that I decided to brainstorm some possible combinations (on my lunch break) using the basic steps I outlined yesterday.

06-03-2010 12:13 PM by degoose | 29 comments »

Here is the cutting and dry fit of the weave pattern…I sanded the lengths on the Jet 16/32 drum sander and cut the individual piece to length using an Incra Mirtre Express..You can see the Magswitch Magnets I am using as stop blocks… one long and one short…The pieces are kept in order they are cut so that the grain orientation is maintained… this makes the illusion…Enjoy the slide show of the actual glue up…Martyn… start to finish for the glue up̷...
