    My first try at this

    This is the sequel to my shorts problem. No wisecracks please. Not having enough cash on hand to build the shorts cart I wanted to, I decided to use some of them up by making my first cutting boards.

    A mix of maple, Brazilian Cherry, American cherry, walnuts, and a mystery wood or two, I have been able to use a good portion of my shorts for something that might even be profitable.

    More pictures to follow as I get them completed and oiled.

    Definitely better to use them than stash them.

    Looking great! I watched this little video yesterday, and I noticed the once the guy applied glue to the strips and stacked together, he also poured clue over the surface of the stack. Why would he do that??

    Yeppers, cutting boards can become habit-forming. At least the first few dozen.
