    I tried to make Elisha's cutting board, wenge with the colored sticks. I bought the same colored sticks used by Elisha, same part number at Michael's. First, it's tricky to glue a stack of sticks, they slide around a lot, so even with my best efforts, I ended up with a slightly-skewed stack. That's where the real problem was revealed...when I sanded the edge to get a reference edge for the upcoming miter, a light sanding rubbed the color off. The dye doesn't extend past the surface of the sticks, so I ended up with blotchy white spots along the edge instead of the vibrant colors Elisha's board has. Good thing I discovered this problem before gluing the sticks into the cutting board, as final sanding or planing would surely have exposed bare wood and destroyed the board. If there's a way to overcome this problem, I haven't found it. So, beware of this limitation. I'll be watching the comments to see if someone has figured out a solution.

    Consider using a French cleat system to hang the cutting board on a wall or side of a cabinet for convenient out of the way storage.

    George - thanks for a great presentation on cutting boards. I am a newer Gold Member and find that your programs are very helpful. I couldn't download the pdfs until today - excellent review points for all the presenters. I wasn't thinking about making cutting boards until this class - now a new goal will be to make each of the boards in the class. Thank for your great programs.
