This pattern kind of reminds me of the way a Doppler radar moves when it scans, thus the name. I think it came out really cool. It took a lot of cutting, very careful gluing, and a lot of planning. This is hard maple and walnut. The finished dimensions are 24” long, 18” wide and 1 1/8” thick. It’s a little on the thin side, I really had to sand this one down. Every time I wiped it down with mineral spirits after sanding, the walnut would “stand up” and I had to sand it again.
Finish is mineral oil, followed by a mineral oil and bees wax mixture. The finish was still wet in the second picture and had not been buffed yet, this board really shines. I also put a 3/8” round over on the top edge. You can see it in the second picture. Also I think the discoloration on that thin strip of maple looks really cool, so I made sure it was an end piece.
