If you have a bunch of scraps you can make beautiful cutting boards.
This board was made of 8/4 Walnut, 5/4 Cherry and 4/4 Maple all around 16" long.
I used a Planer sled to flatten some faces since I don't have a jointer. Then my table saw to square up the sides. (I mentioned I don't have a jointer, right?)
Using my cross cut sled I cut the sticks to about 8" long and planned my design.
The tricky part was the glue up. I made a jig to help out with this and it worked out really great.
Check out the video to see how I used a jig to create the herringbone pattern!
