I have made dozens of these cutting boards with a wooden TX inlay but I really wanted to do the TX flag style that is supper popular in Texas.
These inlays are slow set epoxy mixed with glitter from Hobby Lobby. I drilled 1/8” holes at an angle around the perimeter of each section to give extra hold. I also primed the cavities with a thin layer of epoxy, to assure good adhesion, before adding the epoxy/glitter mix.
#1 fear is that a customer or my wife will lay a damp board on a flat surface and the inlay will crack if there is cupping.
This process takes an extra 1.5 hours so I am going to have to work with my retailers on cost.
