How about that my very first chopping block made from camphor laurel with a rosewood frame, I got carried away so I made a smaller one as well.
The large one is 500×400x70mm and the small one is 500×300x70mm made frome the same materials and using titebond 111 a waterproof glue and oiled with food safe ecowood oil.

Beautiful. I would suggest adding splines to the corners. The wood expansion might seperate the miters.

Thank you all for your lovely comments.
Rex each end of the frame has five stainless steel screws in them as an added strength of keeping them from expanding or twisting or bowing. One has to take all precautions.

Did not realize you had put screws. Forget I said anything.

Hi Rex, Sorry I forgot to mention about the screws, and being an ex boatie I knew that stainless steel screws were the only way to go and then plug the holes with bungers of the same timber, it makes it hard to notice but the end result tells its own story. I wish you and the family well.
