Face grain tumbling block cutting board out of the usual cherry, walnut, and maple. I inlaid a little bunny rabbit in the corner for mom. Its my first one and I was worried about getting it right but honestly it wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be and read it was going to be. The only challenging part was glueing….just a pain.

To get the saw angle set up correctly I did the most accurate method—-just keep adjusting the angle until the pieces fit right. I have one of those magnetic digital angle block indicators that everybody has and found that it is certainly less than accurate.

One of the photos is an example of a ‘sausage’ that I made for glue up. I could crosscut 3 ‘pucks’ out of each.

I found that the larger the piece got during glue up the more difficult it was to fit pieces together. Im sure this is due to the +/- one degree of accuracy adding up or down the larger it got. I sanded the pieces to fit best I could and used tons of glue.

The overall size is something near 12”x16”x1.75”

My advice to doing one of these is just get your tilt on the tablesaw correct—and LOTS of rubber bands!

By the way the pictures were supposed to be 90 degrees to the right…what happened? They look correct on my phone and laptop but change after uploaded.

If you take photos with your phone take them with it sideways(panoramic). You can also crop them with a photo editor and the will work. You can check with the preview option (upper right of the posting box) after inserting the photo to the website.
Nice job on the boards.

Have your say...
