One for a gift and one for a family reunion ‘door prize drawing’ on Labor Day. Lots of variety in wood. Maple, Cherry, Walnut, Purpleheart, and Bubinga all used to cut starting strips. Strips glued then cut again and rolled 90 degrees and alternated. Used TiteBond 3 for the waterproof factor. Literally flooded the surfaces with mineral oil and let them set quite a while then wiped off excess that did no soak in. Hardest part about CBs is the endless sanding (especially on end grain) to get the end grain to look decent. Everybody should try a CB or two as it’s a great way to get rid of saved cut-offs and strips which seem to accumulate (and multiply even!). These two are about 12” x 12”. 197 pieces in one and 204 in the other.

Great choices of wood. Beautiful! I got a chance to cut board on a band saw , it holds the line better, it was smooth.

They all look good. Attractive combo of wood colors and patterns. Great work!
