Pics 1 and 2 are of an end grain, slip match, birch cutting board. It measures 13.5”x16.5”x1.5” thick.
Pic 2 shows the finger groove. It is not a typical hand hold it is just used to get you fingers started under the board. It was cut with a chamfer (45 degree)bit.

Pic 3 is of a simple long grain cutting board made of silver maple and cherry.
Pic 4 shows the new board next to the old one I was asked to replace.
Pic 5 is of the quarter saw “rays”.

Pic 6 is the teaser. Anyone care to guess what it might be used for?

Thanks for looking

Scott

Thomas,
It is 22” in diameter and 27” tall. My head is not quite that big.

Kidding ;) I’m still trying to guess… in my Southern France village they used to bake cakes on a mould with the same conical shape, they’re called “gâteau à la broche” (cakes cooked in front of the chimney on a turning bar, the rather liquid dough being slowly poured over the previous layer which cooks very quickly).
But outta wood, no.

From the dimensions you quote I’d say a base for a table? Or a really big lampshade? Lamp base maybe? There are so many possibilities, it could as well be a fancy jig or an audio project too… moar hints plz!

Ahaa, I think waho6o9 nailed it!

@ Dominic: I thought about that too when seeing it, but since it’s wood it would burn :)
