I’m not sure if this pattern has a name, but it reminds of the checkerboard border around a 1950’s diner. The woods are maple and purpleheart. The purple heart tried to go a little squirrely on me, but we got it tamed down just fine.

Very nice! The pattern is very classic looking and I also like the curved edges.

Nicely done. It may just be the lighting (or the lack of oxidation at this point), but your purpleheart likes so brown that I mistook it for walnut.

Indeed. I thought the same thing JoeinDE.
Love the pattern. It came out remarkably crisp.

Your CB design is a nice retro design. Did the purple heart change color when you finished it? I have had some purpleheart boards that turned a shade ot two. Nive work.-Don

Thanks for the nice comments. this is the first time that I have worked with purpleheart and it became brown pretty quickly. It looked nice and purple to start with, but as I worked it became browner (more brown??) If I hold a piece of walnut up next to it you can see that it is purple, but when it stands alone it looks pretty brown.
