I STOLE THIS idea here. Thanks dustbunny. It is walnut, cherry & padauk. I learned a lot here. The smallest difference in dimensions is multiplied when you get to the outside of your segmented glue-up.

Cool board, nice colors. One thing a cpl of the Masters on here taught me is always try and watch grain orientation it will make our boards pop even more. Thx for sharing! Nice!

Nice job. I have also borrowed this idea and it turned out well. I guess if we are going to try someone else’s idea we should do a good job like this!
Robert Good choice of colors.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

I thought it looked familiar : )
Nice work Vern !!
What size is it ?
Did you do your glue up from the inside out ?
You might try gluing up rows, then gluing the rows together
to make a square. Shape the round from that.
I like the thickness and heft of this board.

I just got an order for another one of these last week.
