American Cherry with Genuine Mahogany and Black Walnut inlays.
I did a couple boards with the Texas inlay last month. I decided to add the star to complete the “lone Star” theme. The star is easy enough to cut out but a real chore to fine tune without breaking off the tips. Took me three attempts. This board is going to Granite Ranch, a corporate resort in Kimble County, TX.
I am not going to push these inlayed boards as “cutting boards” but as bread/cheese boards. I have a strange feeling that a ham/brisket/turkey hot off the fire might just pop the inlay out of it’s cavity.
If interested, I did a pictorial history of how the board was made on my facebook page, “Moore Wooden Boxes”. Some of the pics are out of order and I am to stupid to figure out how to move them around.
