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.

the circles were a clever way to “hide” the error..

I’d like to view the video and learn how the stripes are added. Where did you find it?

Thank you for the help. This is a good project for family gifts and church fund raising events.

I think the secret here is to remove as much material as the width of the stripe, will try that on the next one – the circle inlays could still be added anywhere
