I have been asked to make an end grain cutting board that will have a circle in the center about 4-6 inches in diameter. Think of the Japanese flag. The circle will be a different wood than the surrounding wood meaning that there will be some difference in the seasonal movement of the 2 woods. My first question: Is this even a practical idea to attempt?
I have thought that I might be able to make 2 appropriately sized circles as patterns, cut both pieces close with my BS and scroll saw, clean them up with a straight cutting router bit and finally glue the circle into the opening in the larger board. My second question: Does this process seem workable?
Finally, I am open to any and all thoughts and suggestions as to any better options.
