I made this for my brother in law. I’ve made this design before but this time added the curved cherry strip in between the walnut. Similar to this cutting board that I made. Its a pretty simple technique. Just cut a smooth gradual curve with your band saw in a piece of stock, then glue in a thin strip of a contrasting piece of wood. After it sets up it can be machined and sanded. Thanks for looking.

Good one Kevin, just in time for tomorrow’s picnics.

Very nice….I made a bottle opener which turned out to look like a wooden spoon with a nail through it… so I may have to give this a try.

I like it. A nice brass washer and screw might look classy

Yeah, that would look nice. I hadn’t thought about using brass. Thanks Larry.

Looks good, how does the bottle opener hold up over time?
