Lots of leaves this year & some fell on my cutting board, LOL, well not really. I got this oak leaf pattern off the internet. This is my 3rd inlay project with a router & bushing, I am very satisfied with the results on this project, no errors. The cutting board is Black Walnut with inlays of Paduak, Yellow Heart, & Cherry for the leaves. The finish is Williamsville Butcher Block Oil from hfstaples. I like the Williamsville Oil because it enhances the colors of the wood instead of darkening them like most other oils. Everyone says I would never cut on that board, so all my latest boards are made to use the back side for cutting…........................................Jack

excellent cutting board. The oak leaf inlays are are very nice design feature and really do give the cutting board a nice fall feeling.

This really looks nice. Did you use the Whitehead inlay kit with the brass bushing and set of bits? I just bought their kit and am anxious to give it a try.

Smart to make the flip side for use. Great job.

Nerves of steel are required for this project. To take a router bit to an already finished board, WOW, I admire your courage and finished product.
