    cutting boards

    darn if i haven't been a busy monkey today! after i finished all the stuff with the grandfather clock, i cut all the parts for the cutting boards from the hard maple i scored (see minor wood gloat) from a guy i work with. this will keep me out of mischief for a while.

    How many are you planning to make? That's a lot of little boards.

    i have enough thick and thin boards to make 4 of the size i want, and 1 slightly smaller. i'm giving the rest of the thick boards (enough for a decent sized board) to my dad's nieghbor, who has always wanted to give it a try.

    progress...

    today i spent most of the afternoon cutting the parts to size, and after careful consideration, i divided up the parts from the one smaller board amongst the 4 larger ones, so that the dimensions of the boards are now roughly a little over 11"x14"x1 1/4" thick. i gave the extra cutoffs from the thinner boards, along with the extra items to my dad's nieghbor.

    started gluing up the cutting boards yesterday, and just clamped up the last one a little bit ago. just have to wait for the weather to clear up, then i can take the sander to them.

    Cool, they look like they're coming along nicely, Dan. Now the fun part comes next...sanding. I glued up a quick cutting board a few days ago, and haven't gotten the motivation yet to go out and sand it.

    sanding is no problem yu put it on the belt and wait for it to come out the other side and do ity again as many times as it takes then you once over lightly with the RO and yur dun
    If in Doubt, Build it Stout!

    Feel free to bring me a wide belt sander when you head out this way next year. I'm sure you can just strap it on top of the motorhome.

    i figured that it would give me a good opportunity to break in my new jet drum sander.
