    Cutting Board with Laminated Inlay - Last Minute Christmas Request

    I don't think I am using the term 'inlay' appropriately here? I have been asked by SWMBO for an inlay cutting board for SIL. I am more than happy to do it (SIL is hosting Christmas) but, would have started in October had I known . So I cut up some maple and made a blank.

    Resaw some strips; cherry, walnut and padouk again for this one.

    Cut the blank along a fair curve and laminate in the cherry.

    Smooth everything out, cut the blank along a different fair curve and laminate the walnut.

    The worst part on these is waiting 24 hours before flattening (again) and cutting it in half (again). I'll flatten it and cut it again tomorrow night and laminate in the padouk. If I don't get distracted over the weekend I should make the party deadline, no problem.

    I have to stop for a couple hours and do some work with my fellow network geeks in various locations around the southern end of the state. If things go well I will get this thing back in the clamps before beddie-bye.

    She's ready for a dip in the mineral oil. Looks like the hostess gift will be done in time after all .
