After reading Steve’s blog on end grain cutting boards I decided to attempt to construct a similar board, but as a cover for a box instead of a cutting board. The triangles for the cover are 1/4” thick. I initially had trouble with the points breaking off when I cut them on the table saw, but solved the problem using blue tape to protect the corners during sawing. The box is constructed out of mahogany and the cover is mahogany, cherry and walnut.
Steve- you did an excellent job explaining the process in your blog.
