Ok. I have now officially submitted my application to the cutting board club on Lumberjocks.
These two boards were a major challenge. Properly milling up all the material, glueing up the boards several times, and keeping everything square and true at each glue up stage was a significantly difficult for me, but the results are worth the effort.
The first board is made of purple heart, paduk, and yellow heart. The second is of walnut and yellow heart.
I will never use purple heart for a project like this again. I found it to be very brittle and tear out was a huge problem for me.
