Project Information

This is my first try, using Ganders' instructions. I used eastern red cedar, cherry, and mimosa woods. I finished the board with mineral oil. It is about 5/8" x 9" x 13". I learned a couple of things not to do, one is to start with thicker strips, make your initial board as wide as your planer will handle, and the main one is to mark the strips before and after you turn them over (otherwise it is hard to match them up if they get scrambled.

I just clamped up an end grain cutting board using walnut and poplar. All my wood is from trees I've cut off my place that have been air dried for a year or so. Regards

The design is cool : )
Which of the 400+ species of Mimosa did you use in your board and how is the Cedar holding up with the knife cuts ?
