DIY 3D cutting board

5875 Views 34 Replies 15 Participants Last post by  sreilly
We finally got the video made of how I made my Cutting board. I wish I had taken pictures as I went.
I found enough scraps of the project to attempt to explain how I did it.

In the video, I showed how I took each different color of wood and glued them into a slab, then sandwiched them all together.
One thing I neglected to say was that if I could have ripped the pieces of the lighter woods apart, it would have saved a lot of waste
material.
My band saw is not able to rip more then 4 inches of material at a time, so I skipped that operation.

Now, if I had that thickness planer...…. (just incase Sandra sees this Post.)

Again I really appreciate the assistance and the coodos I received in this project.
AS usual all the members of the forum came together to help.

Thank you

thanks David..
Wow... just wow. Very impressed! Thanks for sharing. I know when I looked at the original post/pictures, I couldn't get past the 3D effect and see it was actually flat, so major kudos to you!

David you not only did a great job making the 3D board you also did a great job on the video.
thanks David..
Welcome Stick
Again I really want to thank everyone for the nice comments.
I have to give the credit for the video to my lovely wife Sandra.
I originally made a video of all the same steps that are in this one, but tried to hold the camera in one hand and the wood in the other.
What with the camera wandering off as I did stuff, and the strap hanging down in front of the lens, I had to press Sandra into service for the final draft.

Good morning Barb. and thank you. I have always been impressed with your sign making.
Some thing I have tried very little of.

Thank you Rick.
We still plan to drive up that way one of these days.
I am looking forward to seeing your shop that you built and that gym of yours.

David
John my friend, good morning to you.
WE are looking at possible late April or early May to come up that way.
We'll keep you posted.

Sandra and David
After the video I now feel I have a much better chance of making something.....maybe not as nice but something to talk about. Thanks for posting the thread and video David. It helps more than you think as some of us need visual clues sometimes.........

Hello Herb.
Until now I did not know where you lived. I checked your public view and see that you and I have the same shirts. Of course mine says Petersons wood working. I left my family at Steilacoom while I took an all expense trip to Viet Nam back in 1966,
I have fished in Puget sound many times.
Beautiful country up there.
Thanks for the nice words.

David you not only did a great job making the 3D board you also did a great job on the video.
Since 2009 when I joined this forum, I have began to notice that there are just a few folks that kind of hold it together.
These are the ones that you can count on to always be there to make a comment about your work or to give assistance when someone
has a problem.
You are one of those few and I appreciate you being there.

Thank you Larry

Thanks Steve. I was going for 3D blocks but since I didn't cut the angles deep enough I ended up cutting off most of the light colored wood. I'll try something different next time.


David
Amazing !!!
Thanks Mark, and it is very nice to meet you.
I hope to hear more from you. From your Profile, it looks like you have a lot of experience to share with the forum.

Stay warm up there.

Thank you, David. It keeps me (somewhat) sane.
Interesting process with great results. Not sure if I have the patience to tackle a project like that, David.
