Looks fantastic. What’s species of wood were used?
As stated I hate waterproof glues, and "new improved" for general use in the trade and even in the shop. I use glue on all my miters when trimming. It just takes a small amount, and I wipe the excess squeezed out glue off with my finger, then wipe my finger on my britches. Regular glue will wash out, waterproof glues won't. I picked up a bottle of Elmer's new improved glue a few months ago because it was either it, or Titebond 2. The Elmer's glue was impossible to use. It almost instantly turned to goo when it touched the wood, and wouldn't wipe off even with a damp cloth. I went to the local Dollar store and bought a bottle of white glue to finish.
In the bigger board I used cherry I had sawn 30 years ago, and some poplar from an old barn stringer that is close to 100 years old. The smaller board is my cherry and poplar packaging strips from the bottom of some pre hung doors I saved from some recent jobs.
Oh, thanks, Ed!
The board worked great for forming 3/4 lb. brisket burgers.
Nice work. But #1's pattern would drive my OCD addled wife nuts(and *THAT* would be a short ride...)
My wife *was* OCD when we first met.
Looks good good job.
Barney them look great. How long that project take ya while us got so many others going on
It took a couple of hours of sawing and glueing, then a 12 hour break while the glue dried. Watchin' glue dry is boring as all get out.
Watching paint dry is boring also, watching some people work is worst. sit in the truck to smoke, slow smokers too, on a job, then drag the job out. that being said, i used to know where ya could get free boards at, to build one is a different matter. i'm impressed and then some.
Nice work Barney! And I hear ya loud n clear on the waterproof glue! If ppl WOULDN'T have their leaking coffee pots on the miter in the corner I wouldn't use the junk lol. Tacks up waay to fast if you're needing some time to even things out while clamping. Irks me to death along with the national go to placement of leaky coffee makers etc..
Awesome work! Something to be proud of. I love little projects like that.
Barney is a renaissance man.
