I made this board over the weekend 14” x 91/2” x11/4” made from Mahogany, White Ash, and Cherry. I bought a couple of Olive Wood at the Wood Turning Show in Waco Texas. The pieces were dray but very rough and cupped but I was able to get this Dove inlay from one. I love the way Olive Wood finishes. This was my first time to use this wood but I think turned out looking pretty nice.

The Mahogany adds a real nice colour to the board!
