When I’m making laminated slicing boards from strips of scrap, just like the one proven right here, working them by way of the planer flattens the surfaces effectively however can nonetheless produce snipe on the ends. Here’s how I stop that drawback. I depart one of many strips about 6″ longer than the others and overhang these ends evenly when gluing up the board. That approach, the planer solely snipes the longer strip on the overhangs however not the remainder of the slicing board. When I’m completed planing, I simply trim off these overhangs. No extra snipe, and no additional sanding, planing or scraping to repair it!
