Another scrap board

I had accumulated some long thin scraps over the year and decided to make another end grain cutting board out of them. I’m pretty pleased with the result. I suppose this really just a regular end grain cutting board with more pieces than a typical one. However, I did use only scraps from other projects, and there are 40 pieces in original glue-up, so if you wanted to make this with regular stock, 40 cuts on the table saw would eat up 5 inches of board width. And a lot of the pieces are less than 1/8 wide, so you’d be making more sawdust than wood in some cases (unless you have a thinner TS blade, which I don’t. But you’d still be wasting a lot of wood). So I’ve designated this design “impractical for non-scrap use.” But since I did have scraps, here you go. Thanks for looking.

Great idea, I’ll have to try this.

Burn pile? Blasphemer!
