Okay I tried something new for a cutting board. (thank you Mr. Degoose for you encouragement) I took some maple and bloodwood made this 11 1/4 by 17 1/4 checker pattern board. As an after thought I through in the inlaid bloodwood heart. I hope everyone likes it. I have a long way to go before I am as good as that crazy aussie…

The contrast is a real eye catcher. I have never used bloodwood but it looks great with a light wood.

I do like the board here and the bloodwood contrasts beautifully with the maple.

Hope your knives hold up to that bloodwood!

What sort of finish are you going with for this one?
