Is the accent an inlay, or is the maple butt joined to the accent?

Great work, did you reinforce the end joint in any way? I would like to show my students this design and am sure that that question will come up. Thanks for sharing

Thanks guys. No, I didn’t reinforce the joint. It’s a cutting board, and so I don’t expect it to be under a lot of stress. Titebond III seems to be holding it well.
I’d be honored to have someone showing my design to their class.
The design was funny. I’d had this idea in my head for a bit for a cutting board with a very thin stripe across the grain of the board. When I actually got to making it, it turned into a much thicker stripe, and once I had it all glued up, I thought I’d made a terrible mistake. But then once it was all trimmed, and sanded, I liked it again. Funny how our brains work.

The colors are striking. Are you concerned about the cross grain causing any issues over time?

Ya, it probably will. I’m still new to this, so it didn’t occur to me until it was already glued up.
Oh well, part of the process I suppose.

Love the color contrast. Looks great together.now you need to make a wine holder to match!

It is a beautiful piece, but I am afraid that this is going to be a learning piece in more ways than one.

Thanks all. I think all that can be done at this point is to enjoy it until there is a problem.
And Sausage King, I took you up on your advice and have a matching wine tilt in the clamps right now. Thanks!
