I wanted to make a TX shaped inlay template. Takes about 30 minutes to tease into shape but came out fairly good. Black Walnut with Birdseye Maple inlay.

I will add a star as soon as I get in some Padauk or Bloodwood.

Very nice application of in-lay. I do a lot of inlay work but never thought of doing it on a cutting board. Good job and a neat idea.

Nice inlay job!
Do you use the brass bushing with a 1/4 dia. and 1/2 ring bushing?
Did you make your own Texas pattern?

Yeah, I used my HF router inlay kit. The rub collars are just fine but the bit is worthless so I just use my carbide 1/8” bit.

I scroll sawed the template. Required about 30 minutes sanding to get everything to fit.

Nice looking board. What finish are you planning to use on it ?

Probably mineral oil. The new owner told me that if I get a knife anywhere near it, I’ll be sleeping on the couch.

Hahahaha…let me guess who the new owner is !
If it’s just going to be an ornament , you might as well put a hard finish on it to bring out all of the beautiful grain and Birdseye Maple.
Also , the Mineral Oil might make the Padauk or Bloodwood too dark , and you’ll lose the “red” effect.
Try it on some sample pieces first though. I’ve had it react in good and unfavorable ways, colorwise.

Cool cutting board! Like the beautiful wood choices and the inlay makes a great accent.

Have your say...
