This baking board (for rolling out dough) contains the largest inlay I’ve ever done. The board measures 30”x22” and the inlay is 14” tall. The board is made from hard maple with walnut stripes, and the inlay is walnut and cherry. My friend helped me cut the profile with his CNC router and I did the rest by hand.
I’m a bit concerned about seasonal expansion in the larger inlay pieces, but I’ve tried to match the grain orientations as best I could. Time will tell.
The finish is five coats of butcher block varnish.
