Hello, I don’t post all my cutting boards because there are so many here on LJ (this is # 19) but I thought this one was worthy of sharing with fellow LJ’s. This is my very first inlay except a practice one that I helped with @ the WoodCraft class a while back. I spent way more time pondering this than doing it since I did not want to ruin my nice board. I made the board a little thicker than usual in case I had to drum sand it down to remove any mistakes, but that was not required. The board is Purple Heart, Hickory, & Cherry. The inlay is Yellow Heart. Dimensions are 16 3/4 long by 13 wide & 1 3/8 thick. Finished with Howards Butcher Block Conditioner. Thanks for looking. Questions & Comments are always welcome….........................Jack

Cool, reminds me of the grill on a big RAM truck, but what’s that mustard stain down there on the bottom left corner?

I like it and the inlay looks like a Chevy logo. Good that you didn’t need to sand it away…

I like that you were able to route the endgrain handles and not leave any burn marks : )

That is cool! Like you I don’t normally post boards as I have made and sold over 300. This one was worth a post, my Motor head buddies would love it. Although mine would have to say GMC LOL
