Here is another board that degoose inspired me to make with his blog on weave boards. It is Walnut, Yellowheart and Bloodwood. This board was harder to make than the endgrain board I made earlier. I will admit that I used some extra glue and walnut colored wood filler to close some gaps. They were less than 16th of an inch but they were there. I sanded it to a 400 grit and then used mineral oil then a coat of mineral oil mixed with beeswax. I am sure that she will like it. She will get it kinda late fo r mothers day since we are not going down there till later this week. Any comments and criticisms are welcome.

I like the use of a different accent timber to the background colour… makes it pop..

The bloodwood and walnut are wonderful colors for a cutting board. The yellowheart just highlights everything. I may try a weave board myself someday.

The knot in the walnut is perfectly placed; well done on the board. I see alot of yellow heart used as contrasting wood; it is very attractive. Do you know what yellow heart does with age; does it darken or anything like that?

You’re getting better at this woodworking thing. That’s a pretty board for you Ma. The knot in the center, well done.

Thanks for all the nice comments guys. I really would like to get a better table saw. I have an old 9” craftsman that has a 10” blade and rust all over it. Also, the fence on it moves as you tighten it down. It makes it real difficult to make the accurate cuts you need for a board like this.
