Endgrain board – recipient wanted it durable, striped and, lightweight, so I made it a bit thinner than usual, about 7/8” thick. It’s 11×18. I also chose a pattern that ended up being “stripey”.
I learned something by doing my last board. Instead of the usual “flip every other board around” technique, i arranged the strips in bookmatched pairs, then flipped every other pair over. It works particularly well if you have interesting grain.
I particularly like how the center cherry stripe came out, as well as the zig-zag pattern the sapele ends created.
Finished with salad bowl finish thinned 50%.
Thanks for looking.
