Step 1: GATHER YOUR WOOD
Cut the pieces you need on the tablesaw and miter saw
The 4 pieces you need are:
Walnut - 14" X 3.5"
Walnut - 14" X 1"
Hickory - 14" X 2"
Hickory - 14" X 1.5"
Step 2: Glue Your Pieces Together
Use a wood glue to glue your four pieces together. Try and make it as straight as possible and then clamp them. Leave them overnight or until it's dry.
Step 3: Put the Cutting Board Through the Planer
Go through as many times as needed to make sure the board is as straight as possible.
Step 4: Sand
Sand your cutting board till it's smooth and you fell no rough edges. We also decided to round our corners.
Step 5: Cut the Corners + Drill Hole
We cut two corners that were opposite of each other. We measure 4" in from both sides and then cut it off on the miter saw. Drill a hole in the corner using the drill press. We made our hole 1.5" diameter
Step 6: Oil the Cutting Board
This last step will make your cutting board look a lot nicer and the woods will stand out more significantly. Make sure the oil is edible.
