This board is cherry and maple, end grain.
I’m having fun playing with heartwood & sapwood.

That is the true art of board making.
Not only is there a wood pattern,
there is a grain pattern.
Well done Kate !!

Yes Fun. I’ve been book-matching edge grain cherry and walnut, sapwood and heartwood.

That is one good looking board! Love the patterns of matching grain.
It looks like a good heavy duty board, too. That is going to look great in a kitchen.
Good job!

As I have commented previously.. attention to grain direction [and patterns] is the mark of a true professional..
There will be no stopping you…
