It started out the (first 2 pics) I had to replace the sink/cutting board cover that warped in our RV. Then when our financial advisor came to the house and seen it he wanted one for a Christmas present for his wife, next 2 pics. Then I had a bunch of cutoffs lying around so I made two more, last 2 pics. The one with the wave through it, my first attempt at that type was quite the challenge. Thanks for looking.

Nice job. Had you moved the wave in just a little bit instead of corner to corner, the glue up would have been much easier. Anyone just looking at it won’t see it, but to us woodworkers we notice, if you use a 1/4 strip for the wave, take out a full 1/4 inch from the board, that will allow the stripes to line up instead of being offset.

I’ve seen those over sink cutting boards and was considering making a few for one of the my shows. Then I thought that anyone that camps wouldn’t be at the show.

I make a bunch of these for different projects and use the Scotty Lewis version as my guide
