All 4 of these boards were made of Ipe and Maple…my favorite dark/light combo.
They are all modeled from boards that have been posted on LumberJocks. What a talented group of woodworkers we have here.

Thanks for viewing.

Beautiful contrast with those two woods. Nice work. I really like the string board.

And I would have bet that the first board was Bloodwood : )
They’re all great looking boards !

Very cool shopdog. How do you get such clean glue lines with odd shapes like that?

Thanks for all the nice comments.

@Dusty56- It does look like bloodwood…bad photography :-)

@mfike- Patience and good clamps.

@degoose- Thanks…it means a lot coming from the chairman of the board.

I wonder what finish you might have used to achieve that color in the first board ?
I’ve never seen Ipe come close to it : ) It’s beautiful .
This is what I’m most familiar with for color :

Dusty,

I’ve been building Ipe decks for more than 10 years, and I can tell you that Ipe comes in many color variations and grain patterns. The only thing that’s consistent about Ipe is it’s inconsistency. For my decks, I like to use the straighter grained, chocolate color, but it’s not possible as I can’t find enough, because my local source doesn’t have a very large quantity.
Sometimes, I find incredibly figured Ipe, but I don’t want that on my decks.
The finish on my cutting boards is called Tried and True. It’s non toxic, pure linseed oil and beeswax.
