Variation of the first board. Had just enough material so used the same layout dimensions, traded the cherry and walnut strip sizes but then cut in 1” strips instead of 1 1/4”. This stretched the material to a point I could make two boards by adding the outer edge strips. Walnut edges on one and cherry on the other. Routed an 1/8” cove on the walnut trimmed board which gives it a nice lifting edge for picking it up.
