1: Cutting board made of hard maple and white oak

2: Ends trimmed square and to size with the mitre gauge on the table saw

3: Glue up sent through the thickness planer flipping over after every pass until flat

4: Glue up of whatever pieces of maple and oak I could find.I only jointed the bottom and planed the top of each piece,the sides were left rough and the pieces joined top to bottom,because they will all be flattened after skip planing

Taking shallower passes with the router should help with tear out. Never have done woodworking in my Jammies not to say I wouldn’t just haven’t. Nice looking board.

Thanks Bill! My sister would have two cutting boards at the moment instead of one,but she took my double sided tape to help fix a dress.If I had the tape the clamp holding the flush trimming template wouldn’t slip.Her loss :-)
