This board was a bit more plain in shape and grain than the crotch piece I previously made, so I wanted to “fancy” it up a bit. The circle inlays are curly maple and it is hard to tell from the pics, but a 45 degree bevel has been routed around the base to take away some of the visual heft. The board is 18” x 16” x 2”. Finished with mineral oil and food safe wax. Sorry for the mediocre phone pics, the board was snatched up before I had a chance to take better photos.

Isn’t it amazing the difference the oil brings out in the grain? I really like it.

Very nice. Do you use Forstner bits for the circles ?
I’d love to have a go at one of these.
Keep up the good work.

Wow, thanks everyone for the positive comments.

cover1967 – Yes, I used forstner bits for the circle cut outs and then a combination of plug cutters and a hole saw for the largest “plug”. Worked out pretty well for a first attempt I think :)

Superb for a first attempt or second or third. Its lovely.
Plug cutters I’m fine with but dont hole cutters have a drill bit in the middle ?

Thanks! Some do yes, but I have a set of Milwaukee that do not and that is what used in this case.

Have your say...
