Excellent video and project. Your projects are nice indeed. What kind of tablesaw do you have there? That sliding top is very cool. The one part that gave me the heebie jeebies was the short pieces cut to length on the saw, would have been much safer on a sled. Great job overall. Bob

I would have to rate your video as average, apart from the fact I was impressed with:
1. techniques you used
2. Saw
3. Timber
4. Skills
5. Glue process
6. Workshop
7. Video presentation
8. Clamping method
9. need to visit a gym is removed
10. Morticer

I have a question,
Where did all the sawdust and chips go? (very clever work there)

In closing remind me not to accept a cup of coffee when I am in your shop!!

Well worth spending 23 minutes watching !!

Highly recommended !!4 Stars!!

Thank you all very much! Bob tablesaw is a bosch gts 10xc, a sled is still on my to do list. Didn’t had any problems yet with this method. need to keep a steady pace and place the rifing knife up high. Once a couple of blocks are pushed trough, they will stay there ( if your not going for a coffee :D) Rob Thank you! Your always welcome for some dark blended walnut coffee ;)

“How to” videos don’t come much better than that, just one complaint, the background “music” was not always conducive to concentration! You are a very clever young man.

Hello Thomas,

Again you have made a beautiful cutting board. Also the video is very nice. I watched it (all the 22 minutes) with pleasure! Music was nice, also from your “new” mortiser. Is he working well?

Did you used spray glue from the ACTION? For so far I could see the tung oil was from De Cookerij? And if i so are the Cookerij products from good quality?

Have a nice weekend.

When I make this style, I glue together the parallelogram sticks before they get sliced. Clamp across the hexagon with three clamps per end, and 3 in the middle. When you are done, you have a hexagon log. Then slice the log. It’s a lot less work than assembling all those hexagon slices individually.

Nice video, and great looking board.

Thanks again everyone!! Dutchy Mortiser works perfect! very accurate and solid such old machine i love it :)
Spray glue from Karwei .
Ik bestel eigenlijk alles bij Batist :). Brtech Thank you, i know the technique but don’t like doing it that way. Because you can’t see what’s going on and how the pieces meet troughout the log.

Fantastic video and subsequent conversation. I was contemplating doing something similar, so this is very timely for me. Well done!
