I saw a post by WoodSmithShop and had to attempt it. I really like these 3-D boards. They are fun to give away to friends. I will have to buy a much better sled before I try another because some of my cuts weren’t accurate. I did it as two halves and when I joined them where the middle maple diamonds are, they did not quite match. I added a Madrone piece that is thicker than the board to each end. It elevates the board off of the table. I don’t know why! I put a little strip of Bloodwood on the other sides. Bloodwood and Curly Maple are the main woods. It is about 14” square without the 2” border. Mineral Oil and Wax as a finish. It is still wet! I was working on this as I made some medium size boards for a craft show this weekend. A few pics of those since I have room!! Last week, a few people asked for these. It seems the big (12×18) boards are sometimes too big. I only has two for sale.
Thanks for looking Robert
