I put these in the background to see if anyone saw them..congrats to eddy and dustbunny, btw Lisa.. this week I will have made eleven boards and a few LLs and the bathroom top. and I do have a job as well.
Well they may look different to the ones you can see there. Both of these boards started out from one glue up.
I cut the strips with a 15 degree bevel on both sides. I left the outer strips with a right angle on the outer side.
Once glued up I cross cut at 90 degrees and rolled them up on the cut edge.. one is all rolled and the other is roll one and roll and rotate the other. makes sense to me., they are long and not too wide << ideal for french rolls,
Then I moved them along until I had a pattern I liked and glued up,.. cut the ends at 15 degrees and biscuit joined the ends also at 15 degrees. Rounded the corners sanded to 240 grit and oiled.
Timbers.. SA PH NGR and TB Of course..

Beautiful boards Larry. I don’t know why, but somehow the one with the saw tooth pattern appealed to me the mostt. In spite of your detailed explanation of how you built them, the whole process remains a mystery to me. I guess I will just have to try to make one and maybe I will learn something. If I do, I will start with a much simpler pattern.

I bought a program some time ago called “Lamination Pro” off the net to help me with segmented turning patterns. I’m sure it has it’s limitations, but it should be helpful in designing any lamination work, including cutting boards. The program doesn’t have pre-designed patterns. The user decides all the variables and the program shows you the result. You probably wouldn’t need it, but I sure do!

Mike I use a Mac and can’t use Lam Pro.. I have however made the first gen lamination cheese board a few years ago, chevron boards they call them.
It looks like the blade of a bandsaw, a little bit hey.

Cool pattern on both. Hard to believe they started from the same initial glue up.

great work !
makes sense ,
makes sense to have a cuting board ,
for every shape ,
of food you have to cut !
a round one for a wheel of chess ,
a long thin one for french bread ,
a rectangular one for ham slices .
a good kitchen cant have to many
cutting boards !

I’m trying to visualize the roll and rotate technique you describe. I think I’ll take your word for it for now.
11 boards plus other projects in one week…..(picking chin up off floor) You, Larry, are amazing !!
Tomorrow I glue up my weave board- from last weekends work. LOL then sighs.

Len, these are just a few trial and error boards to see what does and what doesn’t work.. so far I have had not problems with cross grain glue ups.. Also used a few biscuits to joint the ends to the endgrain,,
see what happens.,. so far so good I don’t believe there will be any problems other than maybe a little glue line lift.,?
