This was created to be a gift for my neighbors to say “Thanks” for watching our pets while we were on vacation.
Board measures 11×16 inches and is 1 1/4 inches thick. For the “bricks”, I used two inch thick pieces of walnut for the first glue-up – this thing has to weigh over 8 pounds! The “mortar” is Rock Maple.
Always wanted to try this pattern and it seemed like a perfect match as my neighbor is a professional chef with the coast guard.
Cutting and glue-ups went very smooth as did the final sanding on my V-Drum sander. Didn’t want to distract from the pattern with any fancy borders so I just did a slight angle on the edges and left it at that.
