Nothing too fancy here, just a couple of nice cutting boards.
The first is made up of maple, birch and walnut, with Brazilian cherry (jatoba) stringing.
This one was given to my brother and sister in law as a gift last summer.

The second board is made of apple wood. It is wood I got from an orchard near my parents place in B.C. I made the board to thank the orchard farmer and his wife for giving me the wood.

Thanks for looking and commenting!!

Nice work, RS. How do you accomplish the stringing in the one with maple/walnut/cherry? A form with pattern router? They really came out great!
Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the comment Mike. Nothing too difficult about the stringing here, I just cut the board apart with the bandsaw, then glued it back together with the stringing in place. I used Titebond 3. Did that a second time for the second string too. Just have to make sure the “stripes” stay lined up when clamping it back together.

Very nice, the stringing is a very beautiful effect. I imagine they will be hesitant to cut it because it’s so nice
