This project was a wedding gift for some friends of mine. It is made of Purple Heart and Maple with Mohagny accents. I went to YouTube and found The Wood Whispers segment on cutting boards to get some ideas and found his podcasts to be thorough and informative. I finished it with salad bowl finish from the Rockler store. The weave pattern was inspired by the inlay on a small box from Morroco that I have. I used epoxy systems 105 resin with 206 hardner.

Ok, so what is the secret to the weaving design? I am trying to figure out if those boards are solid and bent, cut, or what?

I looks great when finished. I love Purple Heart for its rich color and accent/contrast with other woods.

As for Bill’s question: I’m guessing the maple boards are joined with half lap joints.

And Miss Deb – thanks for making me hungry. LOL
