Last week I posted this style cutting board and over the week-end I made another with some added changes. Instead of the dovetail key I decided to laminate a thin piece of rosewood between the B.E.Maple. The lifts and bows are made from Rosewood which add some richness to the B.E. maple surface. I really like how this board came out and plan on keeping this one in house. Thanks for viewing and have a great week LJ’s…Blkcherry

I thought the other board was almost perfect… well this one is a few steps closer. Great board.

Very clean look! I’m diggin the accent colors here. Are the feet fully locked in by the dove tail or did you just add a piece at the end for the effect? Whatever the case, it’s a great board. I haven’t posted anything yet, but I do have a board I made for my wife’s Christmas gift. Might get the nerve to put it up soon. Everything I have seen on LJ so far puts my stuff to shame. Thanks for sharing.

Wilson, what a fabulous board. The birdseye maple is so full of figure and that rosewood is to die for. What a rich tone it has. This is a beautiful cutting board. I like the design change. Kudos! Well done my friend.

BC Nice job, very cool design. I was surprised at the last pic on how you made the dovetails. I first thought it was inlay… Great job all the way around on this!!!!!!

whitedog and Charles thanks for the kind words.

Pickpapa, the dovetail lift is a though dovetail. Having a Incra fence on the router table allow you to fit the tail with very little resistance.

Hey Lenny thanks for the kind comments. The rosewood really set this board off. A few years ago a gentleman sold me a box’s of blanks not knowing what he had on hand. I couldn’t get the money out of my wallet fast enough. When I got home I counted over 40 blanks which turn out to be marimba blanks from Ludwig the percussion instrument manufacture. Each piece has the note tone stamp on each blank, these were factory seconds, they measure a full 1 1/4×2” x 14 long roughly. I use these piece sparingly due to the value and shear beauty. Thanks for viewing ….Wilson

Hey Ken how you doing, thanks for viewing.

This board is awesome. I can see why you’d want to keep it for yourself. Fantastic work.

Nice work would you do a blog on the making & fitting processes of the bowties/double dovetails?

Hey BC, nice additions. That is a really handsome board. Just enough bric-a-brac to be special but not too much. And re-using the dovetail for the feet is just special. I can see why you are going to keep it.

Good job Sir,
