My mother asked for a pizza board for christmas, so I decided I’d make one. This project was made from some old chunks of firewood I had laying around, and a few scraps found in the shop.

This project didn’t go as smoothly as planned. Right off, I had one smalll crack in the inner square that needed to be cut out and patched. then once the whole board was made (luckly not rounded) I had another MAJOR crack that had to be fixed. Several smaller cracks were filled with a sawdust/glue mixture that came out reasonably well.

Nicely done. Nice save from the wood pile. You obviously put a lot of thought into the grain direction and colors because the effect looks like marble and is very cool. Wood is rarely perfect so managing imperfections is what it’s all about and you’ve done a great job. Any that remains, just adds to the effect, in my opinion.

Nice looking Pizza cutting board. What different woods did you use? Does look like a marble pattern. Job well done.

The center square is ash, the cross Is cherry and the outer ring is maple. The dark square is an unknown wood that was salvaged from an old pallet.

I like the pattern, I never would have thought to build such a thing, but we could use a few around here. It just maybe I’ll take a crack at making a few. You know for the younger people this is probably a very nice gift. It’s in my favorites now Ben.

Oh Yeah! Lookin’ good.
I guess you proved that there’s no such thing as scrap wood, not when you can make things like this.
