    Thank you for your appreciation.However, I feel like I should have made Step about Safety. Especially, the safety glasses part.Have you ever heard of "The New Yankee Workshop". The host, Norm Abram, does an awesome job at making wood projects, but also has a great appreciation for safety.

    I will be honest, my cutting board was a little warped on one corner.I wonder if my sanding caused the warp or if it was because of the way I glued it in the clamps. I'm not the luckiest either.^_^

    Thank you for the positive words! ^_^It is true, that a hardwood is probably more worth the effort. I just always wanted to see how 2x4 material would work. I never thought about using bleach. I should give it a try sometime.Thank you!

    Interesting, I had no idea that lumber could potentially be too moist. I purchased my wood from Home Depot. As to how "dry" the wood is, I have no idea.One thing I know for sure is that TiteBond III is "waterproof", so to the extent at which they will fail has yet to happen. I will let you know (nereo1) if the joints happen to fail and I will post on the Instructable to let others know.Thank you for sharing!
