Foth are very nice. I can think of a few things to adapt that technique to. Box lids come to mind.

I made a half dozen sets for Christmas gifts. Got the idea from Woodsmith (I think).
Started with 5/4 maple blocks and made several templates with different radii. Marked the blocks and bandsawd the curve. Cut a bunch of strips of 5/4 wide by 1/16" thick cherry and walnut on the TS and glued and clamped between the bandsawn curve. Repeat a bunch of times. Then trimmed the block square on the TS and glued walnut banding around the perimeter. Bandsawd the four coasters 1/4" thick from the block.
People ask "How did you do that inlay?" :-)

On the two cutting boards I made I can hold down three corners flat against my kitchen table, but one corner sticks up in the air. On one cutting boar d it sticks up almost 1/4 of an inch. I guess I have two options:
1.    I have an old craftsman 50's era jointer that I have not used in awhile. I could get it going. My cutting board is about 12 inches wide, so I would have to attempt to joint one side of one face, then flip the piece over an d do the other side. 2.    A long time ago I attempted to build a planer sled out of mdf. I never r eally got to use it. It has angle on it to nail the piece being jointed to, which puts a hole in the piece. I guess I would use shims under the high e nd of the cutting board until it quit rocking and run that throught the pla ner.
Unfortunately, time is of the essence is tomorrow is my last day of work an d I had intended to give these gifts then. I appreciate any help!

Thanks, Leon. That cutting board project looks like another Leon well done coming up.

I've made those before, they are a good seller at the craft shows. Labor intensive compared to a regular cutting board, but similar to regular projects. What I didn't like was waiting for the glue to dry after each 'inlay' and of coarse cutting the bugger in half at the bandsaw (just seems like I'm destroying it). -BR

When gluing multiple pieces, 10+' you have to apply a lot of pressure to insure all joints get squeezed tightly shut. This will make even BESSEY kbody and cabinet master clamps to bow.

Exactly what I am doing now with 6 cutting boards. Except I went 5 at a time..

I think we're talking about two different things here, one being bowing during clamping due to clamp pressure/alignment, and the other being bowing (i.e. warping) in use due to exposure to moisture.
In any event, I think theoretically and practically screws wouldn't help, because it's fairly easy for them to bend, and wood can move around the screw anyway.

Perhaps but I built a cutting board about a year ago that straddles the kitchen sink. It gets very wet all the time on one side. No bowing but because I did not varnish the ends of the piece I am getting some checking on the ends.

Exactly, they would only assist with slip during glue up.

Theoretically screws would prevent the need for clamping at all since unlike biscuit or dowels, the screws would actually be holding each piece tightly together (assuming enough were used). However, just because something is theoretically possible doesn't make it a good idea. :-)
Once you develop proper clamping technique, including but not limited to using the clamping system in the link I provided, you'll see how much more time it would take to drive all those screws compared to clamping.
On the other had, if you're just trying to make one cutting board and you don't want to invest in several hundred dollars worth of clamps you'd only use for on project.... pfft, I don't blame you-- go for it. Use screws and let us know how it turns out.

I wonder if Norm ever got bowing with "a couple of brads until the glue dries". :-)

3rd option, cut a 45 across that corner if it'll make a difference. 4th option drill a 1" hole for hanging the board and then sand that area thinner so it looks like you meant it.

Try just gluing it like Leon said. If that doesn't work, screw it.

5th, use a jack plane with winding sticks to level the surface.
