Hello LJ’s, not so long ago fellow member Sinister posted a very creative design which took to my liking, so I had to take a stab at making one. This is made with Maple, Cherry, and Blk. Walnut and finish with Watco’s Butcher Block Oil. It a time consuming build but the results are eye catching candy…thanks to Sinister for this beauty of a design and as always thanks for viewing…Blkcherry

Looks great. I’ve been thinking of trying one. Is clamping it difficult? How many clamps and what types did you use?

Nice boards, once I seen how they are made, I then said, I can make that. Thanks for sharing.

Hi BC. Really nice job. Bet the sander came in handy when making the blocks and then the final finish.
