Jarrah and White Mahogany…

Both of these timbers are Eucalypts…

White mahogany -Eucalyptus acmenoides

Jarrah -Eucalyptus marginata

I have started to make an endgrain chopping board using these two timbers..

First off rip boards to width ..

Checking out the order of boards in dry fit…

Number ends to keep order… also work out grain orientation at this stage … crucial…

Glue up… TiteBond III and a roller…[unashamed plug for TiteBondIII]

Using the Jet parallel clamps..[same unashamed plug for Jet]…. ensure sufficient glue to cause a small amount of squeeze out…

Tomorrow….out of clamps and crosscut…

  1. Do you have any issues working with two woods so different in hardness?

    I see another gorgeous board in the works. Larry do you scrape off the excess glue while its still a bit tacky?
