This is just a cutting board I made from birdseye maple, but when I put on the mineral oil it really makes it look 3D, so I had to share it.

Sorry I forgot to post what size it is. 15×10 x 3/4 inches. This piece of wood will never be used.

Birdseye is such a beautiful wood to look at. Shellac also does a good job popping the figured maple.
