I have used up some scraps, and did a request for a wavy board.
1st board- zebrawood, purpleheart, maple, wenge, and hickory
2nd board- purpleheart and red birch
3rd board- padauk and maple
4th board- maple and walnut

All finished with Howards Butcher Block Conditioner

Thanks for looking,

Beautiful, I really like the wood combinations and the checkerboard design is fantastic….. someday I’ll try one of those…...

? How do you keep the Padauk from bleeding over into the maple????

I didn’t do anything special with the padauk, it doesn’t seem to bleed.
I found that if I try to wipe certain woods with mineral spirits or denatured alcohol,
I end up with a mess. As much as I am tempted to wipe the boards…I don’t.
Had this problem with bloodwood, wiped with denatured alcohol…maple turned pink.
Sanded it back down, colors were clear, put butcher block conditioner on it with no problem.
Don’t know if anyone else has had this happen,
but that’s my take on it.
Thanks for looking,

Great boards! I especially love the first one… but I’d take any for Christmas!
Your combination of woods really pops.
Aren’t these just the best gifts to give… I’ve never had a disappointed recipient!
Happy holidays.
