Topic tags/keywords: cutting boards

I made this one from the left over pieces of panel that the last ones came from.
I thought it might be a bit small, but then what is size these days.
The panels were Acacia and Hevea. Never heard of that timber before.
The board is 12in or 305mm square and is finished with food safe oil.

The difference is the cutting is done diagonally which made the glue up a bit more difficult.

Sorry about the photo???????

Hope you like it and thanks for looking.

Bob.

Looks like you chose well

HEVEA WOOD • Hevea is a white tropical hard wood from the rubber tree ideal for chopping boards. • Hevea is very ecologically sound as new trees are planted every 25-30 years, they are only felled once they are unable to produce sufficient latex for conversion into rubber. • Hevea is a hard and stable wood, reducing the likelihood of warping. • Hevea can be successfully colour stained or oiled to enhance its appear-ance and prolong its “working life”.

ACACIA • Acacia is a durable hardwood from fast growing trees • Acacia’s thin grain and deep and varied colours gives products a warm rich feel.- • Acacia is a hardwood and is ideal for kitchenware products such as boards and bowls – it is as practical as it is beautiful

Very cool. I’m struggling to think through how the curves were cut to match between two adjacent pieces. I’m not following what you mean by “the cutting is done diagonally”. Can you elaborate on your build process, please?

Nice work. Thanks. Gary

Interesting how these rounded pieces fit together. Looks like a lot of fun and challenging.

Hi Gary,
Hope this makes sense.
1.You temporarily laminate the two different coloured panels together with DOUBLE SIDED tape, or something similar.
2. Cut the panels into strips, the wiggly cut is the “Drunken” design.
3. Separate the pieces from the tape into two single panels as started with. (One Brown & one white)
4. Select one piece from each panel to make a new panel. Opposing colours.
5. Repeat with the second lot of pieces to make the second panel. Same opposing colours but opposite to the first panel.
6. Glue both panels individually and sand smooth.
7. Then repeat the process 1 to 6, sand again and then glue both panels together, trim edges and sand once more.

Hope this makes sense.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for that info.

Yeah, I made a couple from these two panels, they were posted in the woodwork forum around December last year.

I have no idea why I posted this in Woodturning Forum ??????? Seniors moment.

I was wondering why it wasn’t under projects?

This is wild Bob and it Look great! I’m going to have to try this someday. I also was wondering why you post this project here. But anyway I took the liberty to see if I could make your picture a little more enhanced. Plus there is no “Zoom” button so I made it a bit larger. I like it because it will make people wonder how the heck you did that.
