A while ago, I came across a hunk of 8/4 maple that had a weird mineral stain on the end grain. I figured I’d feature it in a few end grain boards. They weren’t all that complicated to make, but the pattern is surely unique. I made sets of bookmatched pairs to create the pattern.
I posted the first board I made with that piece of maple here.
These two boards used the remainder of that piece of maple. Maple, Ash and Jatoba. I wasn’t sure how ash would work in an end grain board, it’s a bit porous, but has nice end grain. I put it at the edges of the board so they wouldn’t see much use.
The last picture shows the board after the initial glue-up.
They are about 12”x15”x1”. Finished with GF Salad Bowl finish diluted 50%
Thanks for looking.
