thought I’d try something a little different, in the cutting board build, saw this somewhere, I think in Wood mag finishing tips booklet. glued up the strips, then cut at around 45deg reversed one side then glued it back together, made a pattern, in a leaf shape, cut it out on band saw, sanded, then finished with Watco Butcher Block Oil. the wider strips are Cherry, and the narrow are QS Sycamore , I may place this in the sun for a while, just to darken the Cherry a bit.
Thanks for looking.

Looks good. I like to try something different from time to time. Keeps life interesting.

Great work. Love the QS marks on the sycamore.
The brand is a nice touch too.

Very cool Smitty :-) The sycamore adds nice detail to the veining.
