Sorry degoose——I had to do it! LOL

Made this last evening and its out of apple, cherry, cedar, sycamore, walnut. Its 10’’ long and 3/4’’ thick.

This is NOT a cutting board. Maybe a trivet (hot plate) or some kind of serving and/or presentation board.

I’m working up to cutting board’s but just trying to get the hang of the glue-ups and sanding/finishing now.

Thanks for the comments and looks.

I agree with Lew. Great colors!

Very nice great wood and it could be a cuting board why not??? Only thing I would different is round over the edges with a roughter.
