Used to be, anything I had under 2" wide was scrap. One of my uses was to laminate 3 pieces together and make a 16' long piece and round over the top and finish it and call it handrail.

I priced some quarter round and determined that there is no such thing as waste.

One can go down to 1/2"x1/2" stock and make quarter round.

That looks like what Brian (prestigeR&D) did for a floor inlay. I think he used merbau, Koa, and maple. Looks good.

Beautiful cutting board, but I don't think Teak or Oak should be used for cutting boards. Teak has oils that you probably don't want contacting your food and Oak has open grain which allows bacteria to fester. Not sure about Mahogany but I've never seen it used for cutting boards so I would guess there is a good reason why. On the bright side if you can't cut food on it you will always have the best looking cutting board in town.
