Cutting boards try - Need your advise

07-21-2012 09:30 AM by SebLolo | 12 comments »

Hello everybody ! I’ve make some cutting boards with some scrap, but I need some advise of the LJ’s community:- which finishing I can use? I want a finish that can be use for an alimentary use (Wooh, many “use” in this sentence …)- and what did you think of this wood’s combination ? Here’s the 3 cutting boards : ——- First one——- From the left to the right, I’ve used : Teak, a “red African wood”...

My first Cutting board

05-26-2012 12:10 AM by wlojr | 1 comment »

I have been inspired by many cutting boards, that I have seen on LJ, I used some oak scraps that my father gave me and some walnut scraps I got from a cabinet shops discard bin, I cut the boards with my radial arm saw(no table saw yet) and then glued them up with titebond 3 glue, its the only glue Lowes had that said food safe, after they were good and solid about 2 hours later, I ran them through my planer a few times to get them to a uniform thickness. I then routed them with a roundove...

Cutting Board / Knife Block #1: First Post and a Quick Recap

05-07-2012 03:54 PM by Chris | 4 comments »

Well I finally got around to setting up an account on Lumber Jocks and figured I’d kick things off with a quick note about my current project. First, a little bit of a back story… A good buddy of mine moved out to LA a few months back and quickly found that abundant counter space comes at a premium. Being that I’m such a nice guy (and never sent a housewarming present…) I figured I’d try to throw something together for him. What I came up with was a combinati...

Cutting Boards #6: Finish Applied

04-09-2012 08:55 PM by MolokMot | 0 comments »

Close to the final step! The cutting board was sanded down to about 220 grit using an orbital sander. After sanding the board was cleaned off with mineral spirits. Finish (50/50 salad bowl finish and mineral spirits) was applied in three coats. 1. Applied a heavy coat till cutting board pulled the finish through to the bottom. Waited 24 hours2. Applied a second lighter coat. Waited 24 hours Light sanding with 400 grit.3. Applied the third coat This picture was taken just a...

Cutting Boards #4: Final Glue-Up and Flattening

03-30-2012 02:18 PM by MolokMot | 2 comments »

After the last glue-up, and flattening the panel, I cross cut the panel in strips 1.25” wide. Taking those strips I turned them so the end grain was showing and flipped every other one end for end to create the checkerboard pattern. I am sure we have all seen Marc Spag's (aka: TheWoodWhisperer) video. (7 – How to Make a Butcher Block End Grain Cutting Board) I am sure Marc loves all of the extra attention on the subject of cutting boards. Glue up was somewhat frustrating because I...

My largest chopping board yet. #5: Let the sanding begin.

01-31-2012 12:30 PM by degoose | 24 comments »

The board is all assembled, glued and out of the clamps for a day… off to the drum sander to true up both surfaces…[there is always a little slip] and bottom. This is done slowly avoiding any burning of the endgrain.. which will require more sanding to remove.. Then begins the multi steps of Random Orbital Sanding… from 80 grit through 100, 120, 150 and 220. Lastly a burnish with 1500… optional. Here we are after the first sanding with 80 grit̷...

Boards. #1: Buried Treasure....

10-01-2011 11:00 PM by degoose | 7 comments »

In this part of the build… burying the treasure…the Skull and Bones buttons… I have started off by drilling a through hole in the centre of the curved end… yes I has a lot of confirmation that the curved end looked better… and then rounded over the edges.. Next … the holes were dug… OK I used a forstner bit to drill holes to bury the buttons…You can see that even with no finish on this the timber is outstanding… Here we see the bu...

Inversions cutting board tutorial

09-15-2011 03:50 PM by jadams | 11 comments »

In response to some questions about how this pattern is made… I’m not sure if this is the only method, but here’s how I did it. Here’s the original project I posted: Hint: When you look at the board, long ways going left to right, every row is a different size, but every group of 2 rows are all the same size! Solution: First you rip strips like you would for a regular end grain board, but in a progression of widths from l...
