Cutting Board Wedding Gift


Been working on this this past weekend when I could make time. Finished it tonight. Turned out pretty well.

The "well" is Almond wood I filled with epoxy, had massive cracks as Almond wood tends to have. Really nice grain thought, too bad its useless for anything but fire and filling with epoxy.

Cutting section is made of Spalted Pecan wood on the two sides, then a mystery wood I found in easily millable log form... I'm thinking maybe Ash? then the first set of alternating woods is Padauk and Bubinga. Next alternating colors are the mystery wood and Canary Wood. Then the Padauk/Bubings. Center is Juniper.

Thanks, I've made 5 or 6 now as gifts and to my knowledge nobody has used them and thats usually their comment. It's just wood, and meant to cut stuff on. I tell them just keep it oiled and the end grain really does a nice job at not showing cut marks and that they can hit it with some 320 grit sandpaper and it will be good as new in 10 minutes.

Thanks, that was kind of my thought process when making it. A serving tray of sorts. I actually epoxied another Almond block for it to have a two smaller wells on the opposite side for meats and cheeses but there was a large void inside that the epoxy didn't flow into so I cut it off. I think it turned out better this way. Never would have done the tapered juice grooves otherwise, and that's my favorite part of it.
