I had this small cutting board, about 6” by 12”, that looked like it was made from a burl of some sort. Can anybody identify the wood species? Anyway, the board was split and cracked and warped, but that grain was so wonderful I couldn’t help but try to rescue the board.
I thought of inlaying the board into another one, but decided against that. What I did decide to do is resaw the board with a handsaw, then laminate it with some bloodwood to make a more substantial and stable board. From the images showing the edge you can see how the grain of the old board carries through the bloodwood. This was a challenge, but the result was worth it. I really like the appearance and the feel is magnificent.
Have a great day, lumberjocks.
