Cutting boards and trivets are commonly available in a wide range of materials, and typically uninteresting.However, the latter need not be the case.As a woodworker I've steadily added tools to my shop.
With the router and router table available I've tried to figure out ways to justify the expense.Here's a project that takes cutting boards to a new level and makes new use of a few specialized router bits.
TOOLS AND MATERIALS For this article I've chosen lyptus and jatoba for materials.Both pieces were cut-offs from a local cabinet shop.Any good contrasting wood combination will work I also like walnut/maple, birch/walnut, wenge/maple and cherry/maple.
The amount of material depends on the size of the cutting board you plan to construct.I prefer to use 5/4 material which is the capacity of my finger joint bit.Plan to use a quality waterproof glue Titebond III is used in this example.
Tools - thickness planer, jointer, table saw, miter saw, router and router table, finger joint bit or other joinery bit, clamps.A drum sander is also nice, but you can hand sand.CUTTING THE MATERIALS You have a lot of wiggle room here.
For this project I cut 4 slightly different widths...
