This is a wedding gift for my older sisters youngest daughter.

The cutting board is walnut and hard maple, finished with General Finishes salad bowl finish.

The ice cream scoop is walnut with a CA glue finish. This is one of my first turning projects.

Goodlooking board and nice grain orientation as well. Looks good and I’m sure she’ll like it!

Awesome looking board. I like the spoon as well. They go well together.

Beautiful board. You did a great job of lining up all the corners of the maple and walnut. Something I haven’t quite gotten down yet. Your a good inspiration for me to keep trying. As soon as I get one that looks that good I will post it. Love the scoop to. I think I will go fix me some ice cream now.

Since this is so geometrical, I’m glad you put the sapwood directly down the center. It keeps the “everything in its place” theme going, rather than having it scattered around the board. I’m not saying there’s anything with that method, I just think your layout here really works for this board.

What stock sizes did you use for the hard maple and walnut? How big is the board overall?
