Made this board as a gift for a friend’s mother. The dark parts are bloodwood and the light are curly maple. Pretty easy project. Most difficult part was clamping it all properly while it dried. The most fun part was making the little pegs on the lathe. Detail gouges can be fun to work with.

Great looking board – very nicely crafted. Colors compliment each other quite nicely.

Nice job. I have some scrap wood I think I will try one too. Thanks for posting. Oh, Did you use a template for the holes?

I just used paste wax. I think I put on five layers though. Buffed it with an electric buffer though to get it set nicely.

I actually didn’t use a template. I did some mathy stuff based on the size of the curly maple area and then just came up with spacing I thought would work. Then I drew the pattern on with pencil. Then it was just a lot of drill press time.
