I made this board last Christmas for my daughter-in-law and neglected to post it.
It is purpleheart and maple. The ends are breadboard pegged with purpleheart dowels I turned on the lathe.
The last pic is the magazine where I found the design. It can be made in three sizes, and once you make the templates you can start production…..I haven’t started production LOL.
Fun to make, rewarding project.
The finish is Howard Butcher Block Conditioner as always.

Hi Lisa. Great looking board and well executed. I love the extra effort to turn and use the purpleheart dowels. Well done.
