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.
