I think the three columns look like the teeth of a zipper…
Anyhow, I had nothing on the schedule this past Friday, so I hit the lumber yard after work and decided to make myself something.
Dimensionally, it’s roughly 19” x 19” x 2” (second picture uses me as the size reference… it’s fairly large)... Weighs in at just under 19 lbs.
Compositionally, it’s hard white maple and wenge end grain (I found a 2” x 2” x 96” piece of wenge among a stack of otherwise unspectacular boards… so I had to grab it).
Still needs a coat of oil, but other than that, it’s already found a home as a centerpiece in the kitchen.
Side note: this is only the second end grain board that I’ve made… and I’m wondering why I haven’t been making more… because the look / finish is just unbelievable. Hmmmmmmmm.
