Woods used are oak, maple, mahogany and a dark wood that I got from woodcraft in a cutting board pack, but that I can’t identify. The board is 10×14 x 1. The finish is four coats of DF salad bowl finish which really brought out the yellow in the maple.
My cuts must have gotten sloppy toward the end. I needed to add a couple of shims to fills gaps.

You can’t miss with any pattern. I wonder if anyone wont to lay knife on such beautiful cutting board.Such time, hard work, effort and beauty, just to lay in some dark corner or drawer of a kitchen – I would rather have them somewhere as decoration so everybody can see them.
