Thank You SPalm for the excellent tutorial. I will build a cutting board with this design, but I think I will need to choose a better combination of wood types. I had some left over purple heart and maple from my WoodWhisperer inspired cutting boards, and found some cherry left over from my daughters spindle bed.
I like the look of the cherry, the end grain is so tight it almost looks like it is a machine finish.
I hope you all like it. I made it to find out how hard it would be, with the tools on hand, and as a prototype prior to making a cutting board.
One of the issues I will have to remedy is that the tips of the triangles break off easily when scraping off the excess glue. The broken tips didn’t become visible to these old eyes until after the finish was applied. Next time I will wet it down before finish, and fix any open areas.
Look forward to your comments,
