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…

sorta simple in construction compared to your usual splendid pieces, but golly it is pretty..the color variations are subtle, but still eye grabbing.

Wait a second…. When Did you guys find out about “inches” down there? I was all prepared to read how many cm it is;-) Just kidding. As always, another great looking board!

That one has an interesting “asian” look and feel to it. I can see it with thin gently curved ebony handles added. Just a thought….
