    This looks like a project I might want to attempt, hopefully there’s a subtitled version floating around someplace. Being deaf, I get next to nothing from these captionless projects.

    I have just started woodworking so my questions may seem pretty basic. what type of clamps are you using and what size maple and cherry wood are you using? Thanks.

      Hello Jonathan,

      Here is what the experts have to say:

      The clamps are pipe clamps, similar to these: https://amzn.to/2I6smbA . The way that they work is that you buy this clamp, and attach it to a black plumping pipe that you purchase separately.
      The maple are cherry are cut to approximately 2″ x 2″ by 24″ long.

    Great explanation as always. What determines the boards thickness, this example was 1 1/2″ thick. Whats the thinnest you would build
    Thx for all you do, Joe.

      hello Joe,

      Thank you for the question, here is the experts reply:

      It depends on the length and width dimensions, but for a board this size wouldn’t suggest building an end grain cutting board thinner than 1-1/4″.
