The is a fairly standard (at least for me) big block cutting board made from 3” turning stock (except for the maple). The customer hand selected the flamed box elder pieces and was very involved in the design process. The final board is 1.125” thick, 19” long and 13.25” wide. I love the way that the flaming pops on the end grain once the mineral oil is applied. The final two pictures in the series were taken after the second application of cut mineral oil (cut with mineral spirits) hence the sheen.

Really like that design. Never thought of using flame box elder for that. Well done.

That’s a great use of the box elder for really making the design pop.

Hey Joe, Love the woods you used on your board. I’m curious, does the red stay that bright on the Box Elder? I’ve often thought about using it.
Nice job!

Jerry – I can’t say since I’ve only used it for items I’ve made for customers. The customer who wanted this board is a co-worker who really loves the wood. I made a bowl for him from flamed box elder two years ago and the red color has not faded at all.
