I’ve always wanted to experiment with different color woods and make a striped wood block. Normally this technique is used for creating beautiful cutting boards. But, you can use this technique for much much more! Ready to learn How to Make a Striped Wood Block?
Begin by choosing your wood. All the wood should have the same thickness. I worked with some weathered cedar and new pine boards to get beautiful contrasting gray and white colors on my board.
Squeeze a liberal amount of wood glue onto the wood edges being glued together.
Spread glue along the entire edge of each board with the exception of the outside edges.
Clamp the boards together. Wipe off any excess glue that squeezes out.
Let the glue dry overnight and remove the clamps in the morning.
What’s left is a beautiful striped wood block. This could be a tray, a backdrop, a plank or board for building and much much more!
I can’t wait to show you what I made with this striped block. Can you guess? You’ll have to check back on Monday to find out.
