  1. I have an older 13inch Craftsman. I’ve planed the pieces with success and the gaps are gone. This cutting board is a gift to son and his family as he bowled on these lanes as a youngster, the other wood is a laminate of he and his wife’s college colors. I will use salad bowl finish on it as I expect it to be a display item in their kitchen and not used. Will post a pic when it is completed. Thanks for the help. As an aside I’m just getting back in the shop after recovering from another heart attack. Feels really good.
  2. The final glue up HAS NOT happened yet. The 1"1/4 inch strips have been cut in preparation for that final glue up. This problem is on the long grain edge of the pieces not the end grain edge. So I can still use the planer, right?
  3. No, I’ve cross cut into strips and would normally be ready for the final assembly glue up. My argument with myself was the issue you raised did I use the planer or the jointer. I found a video comparing them and since I have one flat side and a right angle I need to use the planer to get the two sides parallel, right?
  4. I’m making the end grain cutting board from season one. (I’m a woodturner who is trying to learn flat stock woodworking). I ended up with the hard maple edge board being slightly smaller and has small gaps. I did not use 8/4 maple. I used reclaimed hard maple from approaches in a bowling center I used to own so the maple was the first glue up and then cut into the various widths needed. What is the best way to get that board to have parallel sides? I dry clamped the cutting board and could not get rid of the gaps.
