This board is made with chaotic pixelated design and I incorporated two strips with the same pixelated design but with opposite woods. The board is made from maple and walnut. All wood grain is vertical to make the board fully end grain which makes the board about 3 times harder than face grain. The design is constructed in a chaotic random pattern (process of cutting, dicing up, and re-gluing 4 times). Routed in handles. Sanded thru drum sander 120, then orbital sander 120/220/320. Coated with mineral oil and beeswax mixture. I’ll add rubber feet w stainless steel screws after a day of oil drying. Measures 13”x18”x2”. Made this one for one of my best friends.

Love it.

Thanks for sharing

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
