This is a picture of the materials (included in the instructions) needed for a cutting board I am starting on. Its the one shown in this video:

https://video.search.yahoo.com/search/video?fr=mcafee&p=youtube+3d+cutting+board+%237#id=1&vid=6a043abe74829382b18982e2e08682e7&action=click

The one thing the instructions do not show is the thickness of the white birch, walnut and cherry needed for the cutting board. Would anyone hazard a guess as to what thickness is of each one of the three species needed? Looks like 4/4 maple, 6/4 walnut and 8/4 cherry but I’m not sure. (Oh, and the seller of the plans at MTMwood hasn’t responded to email requests for this info.) Thanks.

First, he is slow to respond, because of exactly what you see on his videos. Making, making, making all day long, and then sending out plans and such when he can at night. You’ve seen the little ones right? Loving Father figure, does spend time with the kids out of the shop too.

I’ve never sent him money for anything, just asked questions, and have always gotten an answer, usually after I have forgotten I asked him a question though.

Hard to say, unless it really is board #7, the page you linked to has several boards on it. 7 is the top one.

I don’t think it was number 7, because that one is just 3 woods, looks like Maple, Cherry, and Walnut. The freeze pic on the video is the same as the pic you are showing here, Maple top, Cherry 8/4 bottom, and 6/4 Walnut.

Is this a test????

Ok I give up, where’s Waldo?

Good catch. My bad regarding the birch. It’s actually maple. So your guess is the same as mine – Maple: 4/4, Walnut: 6/4, and Cherry: 8/4?

Yep. He works with common sense sizes, possibly in Russia they are metric equivalents, but close enough to make it work.
