Another tumbling block board, made from Black Walnut, Cherry, and Hard Maple. It’s about 13” wide, 15” long, and 1.25” thick. The board’s handle is biscuited on, the sides are routed, and it has 3 coats of salad bowl finish.

I included some pictures of the new jig I made for this. I’m still experimenting with these, and haven’t really found a way of cutting / gluing these together that I am satisfied with yet.

I’ll try and post a blog on this when I find a method I’m happy with.

This is very nice and very intriguing. I swear I am going to figure out how to do this.

You did a great job on that. I haven’t tried anything like that yet, but I do want to try it soon. Seems to me like every step requires attention to detail.

Thank you for posting the last pictures, They completely explain the process of building this type of board.
I need to make a few more and this type will be perfect.
Great looking board.

Working on one of these also.
Have not gotten the angle perfected yet.
Glue up also is a pain…

Your looks good.
