    another cutting board production run

    while waiting on the chair leg, i decided that i should see how many cutting boards i could get out of my recent score. i have a plan for the boards, edge grain, 2" wide walnut, 1" wide hard maple, and 1" wide santos mahogany, glued up, recut, every other one flipped, and reglued. should be interesting. i have them cut to a little over 24", and ready to be resawn and run through the planer. i managed to get 8 boards worth of maple and santos.

    I think we should call you the president of the Board.

    I'm waiting for the final edition Mr. President.

    got all of the walnut cut to length and ripped to width. tomorrow is the planing to thickness for all, and ripping to width for the maple and santos.

    one last time through the planer for thickness, then off to the saw to be ripped to width. then i set up one to see what the blank will look like. tomorrow it will be checking out how my sled has fared, and glueing up the blanks.

    I have some leftover strips from last year's effort, which I am soon going to turn into a cutting board. I have my own way of getting the strips all the same thickness without a planer - I take planks and rip 1" strips from them, and turn them on edge to make up the board. It works. Yours is looking very good!
    Cheers,
    Roger

    been busy with the gluing up of the boards. got six done, the seventh in the clamps, and the last one just waiting it's turn. then it will be a quick pass through the planer to level them out. after that, with the sled repaired it will be quick work to cut and glue up all of the strips.
