    Default Help!

    I'm fully aware this is a very pedestrian question, but I'm still pretty new to all of this, I'm trying to build a brick wall pattern cutting board for a friend of mine, and for some reason I can't achieve the desired pattern, off setting the vertical lines(mortar) to create the brick look. All the videos I see, they glue, then rip, then rotate the work piece and re-align them and poof! you've got the pattern. Not so much when I do it, it still comes out the same way as it was originally glued. Any help would be greatly appeciagted, and sorry for eating up so much space on such a rookie question.

    I don't know how to explain this without sounding condescending, but...you know what a brick wall looks like? That.

    Just shunt every second strip half a brick sideways and trim when the glue dries.

    make the first board in the series half the width of the rest so if your board widths are 40mm and the mortar is 4 mm glue them as follows 20/4/40/4/40/4/40 and then you can flip them horizontally to get the effect. or keep doing as you were doing and just shuffle one over. you lose some but still get the effect.
