My wife has really been killing it with the unique cutting board designs lately. She contunies to amaze me with the stuff she comes up with and her mastery of the craft – despite being absolutely petrified of using power tools less than a year ago.
I decided to use some of her wood (yes, all the wood in the shop is currently hers) and make a pattern I like. This board has a curly maple stripe in the middle, then curly walnut followed by some African mahogany and accented with intersecting inlays of maple and padauk. Each species is half an inch wider than the center.
The African mahogany finished a lot more red than I thought it would. In hindsight I should have used purpleheart for the inlay strips.
I think this one came out pretty nice.
