I wanted to show a few of the inlayed cutting boards I have been working on.

The first one is a walnut Retriever with a Black Ash background bordered with Padauk and Black Walnut 12” X 14”. The second board is a Treble Clef made out of Padauk on a Black Cherry background with Padauk strips 9 1/2” X 18”.
The third board is similar to the first with a chicken inlay 12” X 14”.

The inlay and pocket were cut on my Open Builds C-Beam CNC machine. I use a program called Easel by Inventables!

Any questions, just ask!

Nice cutting boards. I noticed that the grain on the endcaps goes a different direction that that of main area. Are the end somehow free-floating to allow for wood movement, or maybe that hasn’t been a problem.

They are put together that way for effect. I have never had any issue with delamination or movement. I use Titebond # glue and it is super strong!
