Good looking project! Love your inlay work.

What is the purpose of the holes on the edges?

“What is the purpose of the holes on the edges?” = cosmetic???
I don’t know.
I was trying for two 1/2” boards but they kept warping on me (heat from the lap top, hot pans) so I planed them down and hit them on the router table 4 times before I glued them together and made one 3/4” board. When I put on the border I decided to cut them through. It worked, no warping even with heat. I did glue another set without channeling it out and it warped the same as the solid 3/4 ones were.
