Very nice CB’s. I also like the last one, it has a nice geometric design. The walnut and maple is also well made. Someone wil be happy to receive one of this.-Don

Super boards! Are the dividing strips on the last one part of the original glue up or are they added after the first crosscut?

the strips were added at the last glue up. the are long grain while the rest is end grain. The last one really came together organically. I was just playing in the shop experimenting.

All three look great.
The third (based on the last photo) appears to have a high sheen. Is that just oil and wax or did you use something other than wax as the top coat?

The reason it is shiny is that I took the picture pretty soon after the last coat of mineral oil was put on. I wish I could keep it shiny but it get to more of a satin finish when the oil has completely penetrated.
