    production run commenced!

    the optical illusion cutting board production run has commenced! friday i picked up all of the walnut and maple at logs to lumber. yesterday i spent several hours planing them smooth. today's task is to cut all of the parts needed. the walnut is all good straight grain, and the maple has a fair amount of figuring to it. more pics to follow....

    today's progress. i wasn't sure if i was going to have enough short lengths of maple after cutting all of the longer lengths. but with the leftovers from ripping the longer lengths to width, i had enough. the walnut was just beautiful, but the maple had some real ugly spots, and it was fun to cut around them. but, all in all, everything is cut to length, and ripped to width. tomorrow, while the wife is in school, i can start in with gluing up the blanks.

    I was in bed bath and beyond sunday with my wife, she had to get some gifts.

    I walked over to check out their cutting boards and prices.

    I was surprised at the nice quality and good looking boards and the prices were reasonable, considering everyone has a 20% off one item or 5 dollars off a sale coupon.

    busy day today, started when i went to pop's right after work this morning, around 5:30, and finishing up around 8 tonight. first of all, i've a list of 22 items that i need to do, and i got about half of it out of the way today. the first task was to cut another 280 maple and walnut plugs, as i had not done a head count, i didn't have enough plugs. each board requires 120 of each, maple and walnut plugs. now i have enough. went home and caught a short nap before taking the wife to school, then caught another three hours, as she demanded that i get some sleep. after that, i went back to pop's and commenced to working on fixing the first of next year's state fair projects, a cutting board for herself as a gift for a friend of hers, and get the last of the board blanks out of the clamps. good thing i have the drum sander, as it handled the lion's share of sanding the cutting board blanks. the ones for the bulging ones, and chevron ones are quite heavy. then it was take a break, work on something else (her board), and then back to sanding. after i got her board out of the clamps, i flattened it out on the planer, then did the cuts. i then took everything inside and showed pop how the board that took first place was made. he found it quite interesting when i told him about flipping every other strip to get the pattern, then turning them up on edge (edge grain board, my first). then it was out to the garage again to glue it up and put it in clamps, and some final sanding, then a bit of clean up. can't wait to hit it again tomorrow!
