This Board is made from Hard maple and walnut. I inlayed a longhorn emblem with maple endgrain. I thought the longhorn emblem would help me get more dough for it, since i live in Austin tx. It is finished with mineral oil. Yeah…..

Hey, that is a great job! You’re probably right about putting the emblem on it too. People in Texas will like it and pay extra for it.

Very nice, I really like the contrast between the curves of the longhorn against the square end grain blocks.

hey that is nice! but seriously how did you do the inlay with endgrain? did you glue up a whole separate piece of endgrain maple in small blocks and then cut out the longhorn? however you did it, very impressive!

Looks too good to use as a cutting board. Great design. Excellent joinery.

Really nice piece. I am from San Antonio and went to UT so this is great. I am going to attempt this for my wife. Not sure how you did the emblem though. I will figure something out. The design is really nice.
