I’m sure no one has seen one of these, haha!. I figured it was time to make one and play with a little scrap purple heart and ash my father in law let me have. I ended up making it fairly small. We’ll probably use it as a cheeseboard instead of a cutting board (for the once every five years we have a selection of fine cheeses at our house).

Great job – love the grain in the ash!

This is easily pretty enough to simply lean against a backsplash or wall and simply display it – and then break it out every five or so years for that yummy cheese! :-)

Thanks Bob. I’m pretty pleased with the way it came out for my first attempt. I’d like to try and make some with different grain patterns.
