I saw a video of a real pro doing a cutting board with these stripes and wanted to try it so here is my version. I have a bunch of this live edge wood I haven’t been able to identify so I jointed and glued two pieces so the live edge is on the narrow end.
I cut the board and did the first stripe glue up, ok looked good now for the second stripe. What I didn’t realize was that the additional thickness of the 2nd stripe would throw off the 1st intersecting stripe and it did not line up anymore.
I didn’t like it at all so after staring at it for about 20 mins I got the idea of the circle inlay. Found a 1/4” piece of cherry and got out the plunge router. Not bad recovery. The board is about 16” x 10” finished with a several coats of bees wax and mineral oil mix. Will add rubber feet.
