My first Cutting board

05-26-2012 12:10 AM by wlojr | 1 comment »

I have been inspired by many cutting boards, that I have seen on LJ, I used some oak scraps that my father gave me and some walnut scraps I got from a cabinet shops discard bin, I cut the boards with my radial arm saw(no table saw yet) and then glued them up with titebond 3 glue, its the only glue Lowes had that said food safe, after they were good and solid about 2 hours later, I ran them through my planer a few times to get them to a uniform thickness. I then routed them with a roundover bit, and then did a ton of sanding, I finally finished it off with watco butcher block finish, this project was fun and I think one of my nicest small projects to date.
