Project Information

When bored, just build some boards…..The four posted above are mostly from shorts laying around…..just keep gluing stuff together and see what you get. No planning here and it shows…..

Maple, Cherry, Walnut, Yellowheart, Purpleheart, Padauk, Ipe and probably a few I forgot. Mineral oil finish.

Also a couple of hard maple boards from old gym floor…...you can't go wrong with the maple…









Thanks for looking…..

Wow! those are wayyyyy cool.
I collect all my shorts in old beer boxes and eventually glue them together until it looks right, then call it a cutting board.
Some come out really strange, some don't work at all.

Thanks folks…..appreciate it!

Yes Randy - the details for the Chefs board are being worked out…......appreciate the help!

Yes Dave…..we all have our little quirks…..the rest of the house is a disaster, but I do like to keep the shop organized….I'm sure there a word or two that describes this condition…. :^)

Good looking batch of boards … board to the end?

The last bread board(s) I made were when I was in high school in the Junior Achievement program which was challenging and fun! The fun part was making a product; the challenging part was figuring out work around for a broken band saw (multiple TS passes and belt sander). The work there got me a scholarship for junior college!

Thank for showing us your project … how may have you made?

Grat job Jeff.

Besides your board spree, I´ve noticed you started to put dedication and care to photography. Neat.

So, to become a great LJ woodworker, we need to also be a great photographer. OMG

Very nice use of the "scrap". In the process of making a couple myself. Thinking of a new design as I mistakenly glued up uniform pieces which wont provide an alternating pattern when cross cut. Duh… Believe I will make angled cuts for the 2nd glue up and your examples certainly are encouraging for the potential ending product. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks again for the comments! Appreciate it!

Fernando - I picked up one of those light tent things after seeing one in Steve's (SPalm) recent post here. Thanks Steve…

Dan - I've done the exact same thing - glued in all up and it doesn't alternate! Opps….
