This cutting board is constructed out of reclaimed blood wood and red oak with a walnut border and walnut diamond inlay.
This is beautiful bloodwood that darkens over time. To me this is more of a showcase piece to add an extra touch to any kitchen than an everyday use board, but with a few coats of wax and mineral oil it would do just fine.
Tell me what you think!!

Nice board! Where did you manage to find blood wood to reclaim? Also what method did you use to do the inlay?

I found it lying in the back of our shop waiting to be used, I only found a small amount so I figured I would make something small yet beautiful. For the inlay I made a jig layed out in the same pattern 2 3/8” (for my router) bigger than the shape I wanted to make and routed the edges and cut the rest out freehand. then cut out the walnut diamond and glued and clamped it for a tight fit.

Ok, I thought maybe you had stumbled upon some super special pallets or shipping crates. I do like your design and have been thinking of incorporating inlay in to some of my own cutting boards.Thanks for the tips.

Beautiful board! I don’t recall ever having seen bloodwood with that kind of color. Could it possibly be padauk? Very nicely done!
