Nice pattern!

How big is this board?

What are the species? I’m guessing walnut, maple, cherry and mahogany?

How are you, or did you finish it?

More details, please!

Good job have you finished yet? I use salad bowl finish with mineral spirits 50/50 mis 7-10 coats really makes them pop! Keep it up.

This board was from a student of mine. She didn’t care about using it for an actual cutting board, so her wood choices were easier She wanted to make something that looked nice. She thought it could be hung on the wall or used for hot pans on a table. Since she wasn’t using it as a cutting board, she used Walnut, Oak, Ash, Cedar, and Pine. In this picture, she didn’t have any finish on it, but she put some oil based varnish on it at the end of the school year. I think it came out great with all the color contrast and the thin strips slipped in there. Great job Olive!
