I made this end grain CB as a prototype for a new (at least to me) CB style. I have seen hundreds, maybe thousands, of CBs, but never have I seen one with a name used as the design. I got this idea from a question posted on LJ by someone asking how to incorporate a letter into a CB for his friend. This takes it a step further. I have also seen flat grain CBs with text added using a CNC, but to my knowledge nobody has done this before.
Anyhow, as you can see, I have to do better in a couple areas with the letters, but I am satisfied with it for my first attempt. I know that Abbie will cherish it since it was made just for her by her grandfather. :)
The woods are purpleheart for the trim, white oak for the field and the letters are of walnut. It is approximately 16”x10.5”x1”. I cut the finger holds with a cove bit on the router table. The finish is mineral oil. Please let me know if there are any questions.
