Spalted Maple Bread/Cheese Board

Made this out of several different scraps of spalted maple. What I ended up with is NOT what I started out to do but it will make a nice bread/cheese board for someone. It measures 16” x 9” x 3/8” and is finished with Danish oil and Howards wax. It really did turn out a lot better than I had originally planned. Thanks for the looks and comments.

Amazing grain in this one. Very cool, this is terrific just for the look of the grain alone. Nice job!

Beautiful wood and really neat idea but the “handle” makes the entire piece PERFECT!!
