I made these sushi boards after being inspired by several other LJer’s creations. The wood is primarily maple with an edge of walnut and tigerwood. I did make the walnut a little proud of the tiger and maple primarily for aesthetics. I found some really nice bowls for $2 each and set them in a well with cork on the bottom. The bottom has 2 runners to raise the board slightly. I finished the boards with wipe on poly on the bottom and the sides and mineral oil on the top. I also tried out my new branding iron… that was an adventure! I am still getting used to “how long” and “how much pressure” to put on it. Each type of wood is a little different (practice, practice, practice and maybe one day I will get to the Carnegie Hall of woodworking ;-))!!!).
Thanks for looking. Constructive criticism is always welcome!
