This zigzag board is 11-5/8×97/8×5/8 and is made from Lyptus, Paduak, Purpleheart, and White Oak. I treated both with General Finishes Salad Bowl Finishing Mix with some sanding in between coats.

Really like the zig zag colors and design !! : ) I thought the Lyptus was Cherry at first and the dark marks were sap pockets as seen in Cherry quite often.

Yeah, the picture doesn’t really show how pink the Lyptus so it does kind of look like cherry. The other cutting board is from the same board so that might give you a better look at color.

The pink and purple , not so much…Looks kind of blah , or it could be the photo quality/ lighting.Try adding a lighter colored wood next to the Pheart to bring out its real color , and it would also bring out the pink (Lyptus) as well : )Just a thought.

To be quite honest, I’m not really feeling the striped one either. I expected it to come out differently with a bit more contrast.

Yup , my own boards that don’t come out the way I planned , get used daily , with no regard for knife marks ! LOLAnother learning experience is how I look at it. I now place the woods side by side before any gluing commences and also apply finish to samples to get an idea how the finished product will look. In the end it saves time and materials : )This is one board that I didn’t test the Mineral oil on first because I’ve used Padauk in the past and it held its color…but, not this time : ( http://lumberjocks.com/projects/24512On occasion , some folks just want a board to cut on , so I give them one of my “off” boards : )

Yeah, the woods looked pretty good side-by-side but then it just wasn’t the same after the salad bowl finishing mix was applied. I agree, it’s all a learning experience.
