13-1/2” x 18”, maple and sapele, stripes vary in width from 1/4” to 1-1/4” incrementing by 1/8”. 2 applications of mineral oil to start, then finished with a mineral oil and beeswax emulsion.

Third picture shows how I mount the rubber feet so that the board doesn’t stand too high above the counter, those were just over 7/8” diameter and about 5/8” tall, so it’s a 1” diameter hole approximately 7/16” deep. That photo also shows the penny with the year the project was completed.

Awesome job Mark! Two great woods to contrast against each other. I like the idea of the beeswax along with the mineral oil, I’ve tried that on the last few boards I’ve done. Good tip on the inset feet too.

I like that gradation pattern from thin to thick.
