I always loved the look of these, so finally made mine. It’s made from Maple and Purpleheart.
Aside from having to be very particular during the cutting and glueing processes, it’s pretty easy. Definitely easier to do the final sanding on these than the endgrain boards.
Finish is 2 coats of GF salad bowl finish. first one rubbed well into the wood.
Thanks to all the previous posters who delivered the inspiration for this, and especially to poroskywood for the great tutorial. I left out the strips in between this time, just to see how close I could get the corners to Match. Came out pretty good. Next time, gotta try the contrasting strips in between.
