I was inspired by lumberJILL Betsy and her creative use of small pieces of leftover wood, this is made just like a traditional end grain cutting board and is just a little smaller than Betsys board , its 6”x 4”. The woods are maple, cherry, walnut and purple heart. This little thing was hard to hold onto while sanding and I think there might be as much glue in it as there is wood.

An intricate piece for sure. Would make a nice trivet for any dish or any table!

Nice job.

After looking at this, I can’t figure out how you managed to glue this up and not have the pieces stay together and not move out of alignment as small as they are. If it was me who was sanding this, I would probably sand it into oblivion. Good job.

Fishinbo, thats what I’m thinking.
Ken, it was fun to make this and I have plenty of scraps so I will be making more.
Mip, I did it just like a full size board so it really wasnt hard to keep lined up, sanding it was the tricky part.
Thanks for looking !!!!
