  • 3/4 stock for end grain cutting board?

    I am planning on making a couple of end grain cutting boards for Christmas and most of the pieces of wood I have on hand are 3/4" thick.

    Are there any problems or disadvantages in using 3/4 stock for end grain cutting boards?

    All of the videos and articles I have found so far seem to start with a minimum of 1" thickness.

    Thank you...

    You'll just need more pieces (obviously).

      You will be gluing the 3/4 inch slices of the cutting board up side by side, edge grain to edge grain to start.

      then you will slice that glue up in 1 inch or more slices and turn them 90 degrees and reglue them to get your end grain board.

      So with 3/4 inch stock you can still make a thicker end grain board.

      When someone tells you it can't be done, it's a reflection of their limitations, not yours.
