Used this cutting board to learn how to use the tools and build something useful. This was my practice project before undertaking the monster dinning room table.

Very interesting, how do you achieve the faded edges around the darker center in the blocks?

Naz,
The faded edges were a characteristic of the wood. The showed up more when it soaked up the mineral oil.

Degoose,
I didn’t notice the weave…cool…just the luck of alternating the grain.

Biggest challenge in the process was getting a straight cut. Edges touched but I would have about 1mm in the center. I couldn’t figure out why that was happening. Any ideas?
