I made my first yesterday, this is my second and probably last for awhile. The weather is getting nice and I have some beauty logs to mill. No real story, maple board with walnut dovetail splines. I inlayed a walnut band around it, then cut smaller maple dovetail splines into the walnut ones.

I like it a lot. I really like the way it is framed in walnut – especially the way it continues around the splines. The splines add a lot of bling as my daughter would say… thanks for sharing your projects.

You are getting some mileage out of the dovetail spline jig. This curring board is really nice and the dovetails add an unusual detail to the piece.

Thanks for the post.

I like the look of this one. your last was nice as well, but I like the spacing you gave the dovetails on this one better. The inlay steps it up another notch as well. great job!

Scott, I am afraid I may be addicted to this tool. I swear I tried to put it down.
darryl, yea the first one was really my first cutting board ever and only the second project with the jig, this cutting board being the 3rd. I am learning I guess ?

Wow Daren, that is outstanding. I ordered one of the Kehoe jigs last night, I can’t wait to get it and give it a go.

The last one was cool, but this is even better. You’ve perfected a very cool design. Great idea!
