006: pallet wood cutting board #2: cuts and glue-ups

03-30-2010 11:02 AM by Gary Fixler | 3 comments »

I’ve renamed my 5 preexisting project series from “project: whatever” to “00n: whatever” where n is the number of the set of posts in order. E.g. instead of “project: a rolling base for my planer,” that was the second project series I made, so now it’s “002: a rolling base for my planer.” The projects were starting to scatter in my series list, and I’d have a few series listed at the top in the drop-down for new posts, then an ...

End Grain Cutting Board LJ Class 006 #10: Second glue up.

06-24-2011 02:59 AM by degoose | 6 comments »

You really need to take your time with this glue up.. to make sure that the board ends up flat… Apply a small amount of glue.. Spread it evenly with a roller…. Use cauls to keep the ends level…When glueing make sure that each piece is level with either side and apply just enough pressure to see a little glue squeeze out…More tomorrow..

It is amazing but once I started making the 2 end grain cutting boards for the class…. I got caught up in the moment and just had to make some more… I have some really nice European Walnut, New Guinea Rosewood, Camphor Laurel and Wild Cherry…. so I ripped them down and… are a few more in the rough… and some still in the clamps… and one ready for sanding before crosscutting… So far another eight end grain boards in the last two days̷...

End Grain Cutting Board LJ Class 006 #14: Rub me with oil!

07-06-2011 11:20 AM by degoose | 10 comments »

After sanding the boards to 320 grit on the Random Orbital Sander, I used 1200 grit to burnish the tops only… then it was just a matter of rubbing heaps of Mineral Oil [liquid Paraffin oil] into the boards…and buffing off the excess… this procedure will be repeated every 24 hours..once I get back from Adelaide…And then just one more finishing touch… next week…

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”...

Snakes Pattern in Solid Wood #2: Puzzling

05-31-2010 12:28 PM by BritBoxmaker | 19 comments »

Hello again. The glue-up went well. So did the cleanup and sizing of the smaller squares. So I decided to try a dry run of a patch of the snakes pattern. Sawed up 1/6th of my stock netting 15 large squares and 14 small (7 x walnut, 7 x maple). Played around a bit and this is the result.Some of the maple wasn’t the lightest in the world and I hope the contrast holds when its finished.Patterns in the layout have emerged which should make things easier come glue-up time, such as every larg...

Bread Cutting Board

11-29-2012 01:07 AM by David Craig | 14 comments »

The rumors are true. Occasionally, I actually do some woodworking. Many times I just have a limited amount of time and don’t post. I still need to get a digital camera to make the process easier. I was asked if I could make a dozen small bread cutting boards to be used for sending loaves out, along with jam, as Christmas gifts. As luck would have it, the same person also wanted me to help get rid of an old red oak hutch for her. So I am killing two birds with one stone here. The h...

Checkerboard End Grain Cutting Board #2: Putting it together

06-12-2009 05:26 AM by Brad_Nailor | 5 comments »

Ok, when I last left you this cutting board was just a Sketchup design. After a trip to the hard wood dealer and some basic milling I arrived at this very hefty glue up. I tried to do the ripping on my BOSCH, but even with a thin kerf blade it was a little too much for that saw, so I took over my buddies cabinet shop! Here are some shots of the first glue up..Here is the blank, out of the clamps and sanded to 1 1/2” thick..Ok, now the fun part..After squaring one end up on the radial ar...

006: pallet wood cutting board #3: cleaned up, ready for final shaping and finishing

03-31-2010 03:59 AM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

Well, it’s a lot nicer than it was where I left off yesterday. The router bridge (seen at the end of this post) is such a nice way to plane things, and I’ve thought of some ideas that might make setup a lot easier. I’ve moved up to a 5/8” or maybe 3/4” bit and it makes planing a lot faster. Too, I found that just putting masking tape along the bottom edges, curved to stick to the workbench is more than adequate as a hold down until I come up with a better solu...
