poorly cut strips
For this price point, u would think the pieces would be cut of equal thickness to maintain symmetry as seen in the picture of the finished board, which is an impressive mix of woods. However, the pieces I received were not all cut to even thickness, specially the thin maple strips. Some of the maple pieces were tapered, some had huge saw marks which required sanding or planing...but these thin pieces could not tolerate any sanding or planing, or their thickness was greatly different than the maple strips that needed no work. The overall board would loose the symmetry with the other thin maple pieces. So I ended up milling my own maple strips to make this board work. The thicker pieces also needed hand planning to get the sides flat for a clean look after glue up. I thought the benefit of buying this ready to glue cutting board wood, was to simplify the process? Great concept, nice woods, but their needs to be some quality control. Turned out to be quite the long process vs. just glue up, edge treatment and sanding.
Every single piece of wood has two stickers. The P65 warning sticker comes off clean but woodcraft inventory sticker did not causing a lot of frustration. Would not recommend.
Bad quality control on boards
Purchased this kit. One of the boards wasn't even close to planed on two sides. Only found it after I had it glued up. Asked for a replacement kit. Second kit had the same problem but on multiple boards. Really disappointed with the quality control for the cost of these.
Great kit. Just enough extra work to make it feel like it's yours. I used tung oil on mine, really made the grains pop.
Awesome went together and finished very easy... Nice Peice
DO NOT BUY, SAVE YOUR MONEY
My "ready to glue kit" that is "surfaced 4 sides" looks like it came straight out of the mill. Saw marks all over, splintering edges, and several burn marks. I attempt to talk to customer service in private to resolve this issue and they say "Our kits are surface treated and may contain remaining tool marks that would require light sanding." If it is surfaced 4 sides then maybe light sanding would be an acceptable answer, but this was a total waste of time and a bust on a Christmas gift for my mother. I'd have three times better results cutting and gluing boards straight from my table saw.
needs way more work than anticipated
These cutting boards do look great and the value when on sale is good (I paid $30). It is assumed the cutting board is ready to glue up, sand, and finish but that is not the case. The boards where very different sizes, some of the boards were as much as 1/4 - 1/2" taller than the rest. The cutting board requires many passes through the planer before the final sanding steps and routing can be done. Paying a premium price for pre-cut wood and a ready to build cutting board should be more precisely cut. It is hard to recommend the product if you already have the equipment to make cutting boards. Buy your own wood, cut it to the size you need, and away you go.
Not a entry level woodworker project!
If the 2 kits I ordered were not gifts for Christmas I would of sent back. I had to sand/plane a bunch of peices. one of my marble wood peices was so warped I had to cut down to a thin strip just to use and one of the purple heart peices was not even close to being purple. Also one of my maple strips had a big chunk missing that I could not even use. I had to add wood I had in stock just to make something that I could give as a present. Next time I will just hand pick my wood so I dont have to stress over getting taken by what they claim is just a glue,clamp and sand project!
I made this kit and it turned out great! Very happy with the wood and the kit itself!
Bought this thinking I could save time making a gift. Poorly cut wood requires jointer before assembly. What is the point in paying a premium for pre-cut wood? Recommend hand selecting wood and cutting yourself.
