    NOT for the Swap!

    So, I've built a bunch cutting boards but never have really made one for myself. I've got what I consider to be the factory rejects.

    This is no exception. When I was putting together the strips I had an Idea of how it would work, with 2 different sized blocks. I would offset them and then when I flipped it over they would all line up with the joints not intersecting. Note to self, Next time try it in sketchup first!

    Oh well, So I put it together any way and just slightly offset the joints. Not as strong as it could be, but I'm not going to have any dancing girls prance around on it.

    It should be good enough for Guvmint work. Lasered it up too. Why not.

    I suppose I could try and talk Sharon into it during one of our Friday Night Jukebox parties.

    It works quite nicely. You can work on the dancing later. Perhaps a nice chardonnay?

    Meh. No dancing girls? Who'd want that?

    Looks like it'll work great.

    Ah, it'll be fine - looks pretty good from this side of the mountain anyway.
