This round endgrain chopping board is made from Red IronBark and Bloodwood… local native hardwoods milled just around the corner… initially they were short decking boards…
3 wide boards and 1 narrower one…glued together then cut and roll and rotate. [standard construction method…]
Then cut into a circle on the band saw circle cutting jig… sanded at the disc sander on the circle sanding jig…
Then oiled with grape seed oil…
11 inches in diameter and 1 1/4 inch thick….
This was a prototype to see how the decking boards would work out…
Seems like a winner… now for a larger version… stay tuned…

Looking good Larry. I like the slight rounding on the middle and edge boards.

Your grain orientation gives the CB a gentle wave pattern. Another great CB.

wow how nice to have blood wood grow there as a native, send me some wonder why certain tree’s grow where they do, its very interesting to me….do you grow any walnut over that way, or something similar…this board turned out really beautiful…so rich in color..very elegant….
