This was round two of attempted cutting boards. My first attempt was more cutting and glueing to get the design i was looking for (similar to the last picture). I used oak,cherry, maple, walnut and purpleheart. I mainly used my super cheap benchtop tablesaw to cut to width. I would be lying if i said it didn’t scare the crap out of me with some of the cuts. I love my yellow push block though. I would never have tried this without it.

Doing a few if these, I learned a few things:
1. I need a legit tablesaw.
2. Glueing is an art. Not too little…and not too much!

Next up might have to be one of those 3D looking end grain boards!

good looking boards! a nice table saw is good but even a good one can be scary. Always know where your fingers are and stay out of the line of fire… Thanks for sharing!

Nice looking boards. 3D cutting boards require some skilled table saw work(angle and crosscut sled cuts). Be careful. There are some good tutorials on You Tube. That’s how I learned.

Have your say...
