I haven't begun the project yet, my brother and I will be making 3 set for his son, my son and daughter, and of course a set for anyone who comes to the grandparents house to play. One thing I think we will try is to do all the sanding prior to cutting, then only edges are left to do piece by piece. Hopefully this will speed up time for only having to handle long boards instead of each block individually. I will try to post the results after. If anyone else tries this first, please let me know if it turns out badly and I won't bother. Thanks again for original post.On a side note if it turns out well, my brother has said he may use some of his nicer boards and we can stain them different shades for aesthetics as he is quite the woodworker. (makes beautiful cutting boards already).Thanks again, ALL!!
I know it is 3 years later, but thanks for the tip about the paste wax. I was conerned about the ability of the pieces to slide even with very smooth sanding. The wax finish just removed enough friction that everything works miles better. Lot more work to this then I thought when I started, but it looks great. Hopefully my daughter likes it.
