I’m almost done with my first cheese board. It’s been an experience. I’ve never done anything quite like the chevron. It was a little bit of a challenge but I think I did okay. I’d like your opinion on whether or not I should round off my corners or just break the edges.
Also the artistic side of my mind (which is not exercised very much – so it may be wrong here) wants to put in some fancy diamond shaped inlays on the sides, just small 1/4” diamonds in walnut. What do you think?
You’ll notice that my chevrons are off center, they were centered and they just didn’t look right to me so I chopped off a little on one edge to “fix it”.
I can certainly see how degoose and others get so many design possibilities with this process. Anyway – here’s my board – what do you think?
The woods are walnut, cherry and hard maple.
I have to admit this woodworking therapy sure seems to be working! The more I’m out in the shop the more I feel like my old self.
