This board is 13” x 19” x 1 1/4”.
Hard Maple and purpleheart accent stripes.

The customer requested a tight weave board to give as a wedding gift.
She said surprise me, so I did with a couple variations. This one, the walnut with maple accents 1/2 board that I posted yesterday, and one with maple and walnut accents. All three were made this size by accident, I overestimated the length of the strips for cutting the squares. Gave her a choice of three sizes by removing rows. She chose this one full size.
Nice choice !! I put together a “Care of Your Board” leaflet with a business card, and a new bottle of
Howard Butcher Block Conditioner. The two other boards need to be sanded and finished, will post when complete.

Thanks for looking,

Lisa

Interesting variation with the outside accent strip the same as the middle piece. Nice!

As far as I’m concerned Tight Weave is the only way to go, less work also.

Any thing on the raffle for the kittens? I’d love to Pay Pal a donation for a chance to win one of your boards.

Very nice, Lisa. And I like how you marketed it with instructions and a bottle of oil to keep it nice. Well done!

Kewl! I’m liking the lighter maple even better than the walnut for the main wood.
You do such beautiful work. An heirloom cutting board.

EzJack- I have seen websites with boards that are treated with olive oil. You asked IMO, I am not so sure I would use olive oil, it is a vegetable oil. It may work fine, but I wouldn’t want to chance a board going rancid.
Anyone else have opinions or experience with olive oil ?
