    Next Project

    I grabbed 4 FIR 2x4 studs from the shed. Lowes around here has some nice fir 2x4's.

    I cut 8 pieces 38" long

    I face jointed and edge jointed, table saw parallel.

    Then I glued them up.

    Tonight I used a 1-1/4 bit and faced the panel flat.

    It is now a 25 x 38 x 1-3/8 fir panel.

    Cost so far = about $10

    Gonna make something cool.

    Well at least "I" think it's cool

    Yeah, that's a pretty slick trick that most woodworkers can't pull off.

    That's gonna be a huge cutting board, Leo.
