Like many of you, I have lots of scraps laying around the shop. I’ve been watching videos on making a curved inlay cutting board and wanted to give it a try. Of course, this project required at least one new router bit… In any event, I made one that sold so I figured I’d try another one. This one went much better than the first try. This one was made from ambrosia maple, maple, and cherry. The inlay is white oak sandwiched between walnut. Maybe for the next one I’ll try interlacing the inlay strips. Thanks for taking a look.

Nice board.

Did you just set the strip in straight, and use clamp pressure to pull it into shape against a curved cut on the board itself?

Yes, SteveN, that’s exactly what I did. A bit tricky as you might guess. Used my parallel clamps for the initial clamping then once I got it snug, tightened the bar clamps. Even then, the pieces want to walk all over the place. Use a long set glue.

Have your say...
