I can’t take credit on the design of this. The Idea came from Al Ladd’s webpage. It’s made of Purpleheart, maple, english elm & walnut. Strips were milled to 1/2” then laminated. I then jointed them on a router table & planed them to 2” thick. After which i cut rotated & glued the main panel together. Then i framed the main panel with the outer panel of walnut & purpleheart. Not pictured in this photo but i rounded the corners with a 1/2” radius roundover bit on the router table. It was finished with Walnut oil.

Nicely built and finished cutting board. You made perfect choice of multiple wood with contrasting grain & colour. I like it man.

this is very pretty! I am going to try one. whern’t you afraid that the wood movement will break the frame?

Very nice, if you have some pictures of the assembly process I am sure I am not the only one that would like to see them.

“whern’t you afraid that the wood movement will break the frame?”

Yeah, that was a concern in the back of my head too. Especially since this will be in repeated contact with water. I guess we’ll see how well it holds up. I’ll post an update if i hear anything negative from the giftee.

I didn’t take any photo’s during the build. I may do another here for myself to see how it holds up to day to day use though. If i do i’ll take some shots during the process.
