I just finished this board tonight. I made it for my mother for Christmas. The blocks are maple, walnut, and cherry. The boarder is padauk. The board measures 16 1/4” X 10 1/2” X 1 1/2”.
The blocks didn’t line up quite as well as I wanted, but overall, its not too bad.
I sanded it to 400 grit and oiled it with mineral oil.
The first picture is the board after oiling. The second one is just before oiling. The third is when the boarder was being glued on. That padauk really makes a mess in the shop! Everything was already purple from my last cutting board, and now it has a layer of orange on top.
