End Grain Gluing

Do not zoom in if you have Trypophobia
Just a brief technical post, so be forewarned if you're not into the how-it's-made aspect of this blog.

I glue wood together all the time. I don't really like nails or screws that are visible. Sure you can plug a screw hole or put wood fill into a nail hole, but you can see that something is there. I think you can use plugs in a stylistically positive way, but only if you set out to add that to your design.

Gluing wood face-to-face has challenges, edge-to-edge is common, but anything-to-end grain presents a challenge...

Cutting Board 2.2 - Maple, Large

Maple cutting board
Merry Christmas, one maple edge-grain cutting board found its way under a tree this year.

Bags Boards 2.0 - Chicago Blackhawks

North of the Mason Dixon Line...
I did Packers Bags, and hockey fans are something else, so voila: Chicago Blackhawks Bags Sets. Yes, I am aware that I'm not *supposed* to like the Hawks, but they're one of the Original Six, and are not the Bruins or Maple Leafs, so they're acceptable in my book.

Knife strips, you know the drill generally.

Just like most of the knife strips I've made recently, this comes from a custom order that I received. More info and pics after the jump...
