Inspired by all the tumbling block cutting boards. made from carnary,purple heart,jatoba,& maple. finish is blo and lacquer spray. I just hope all the glue joints stay and don’t split over time.

Superb job of the bowl… my only comment would be that IMHO the cubes would look better had the grains been perpendicular to each other…and my only other comment would be that the PH probably needed more time to go back to the rich purple color…
