A while back I built a cutting board, only to discover at the end of the process that I had used piece of maple that had a hairline split in the end. I trimmed off what I though was enough to cut past the split, but apparently I didn’t take off enough, and over time it spread further. I assumed the board was a lost cause, and planned to toss it.
This morning though, I picked it up and decided to use it to experiment with making my first little serving tray. I was able to work around the area where the split had occurred, and managed to produce this. While it wasn’t what I set out to make, I’m pleased with how it turned out.
There’s a recess cut out for the bowl to sit in. The bowl is just a little ceramic piece my wife bought a long time back.
