All Maple, the dark pieces were baked. Food safe finish. I’ll have to try a different looking Pin next time.

Can you explain “baked?” Please. Cause, I totally thought that was walnut.

Nice work Btw.

Thanks Pottz, cutting that slot in the handle was a little easier this time, but still a lot of work.

Thanks Brian, I had to Google Caramelized or Baked Maple after I bought the pieces. Sounds like the Maple is cooked in an oven.

My immediate thought was that you gave it a contact high. Beautiful work, John.

Very nice boards, John. Did the maple change color through and through with baking? How hot , how long?
I have never seen that before.

Cheers, Jim

Thanks Lew.
Hey Andre, 20” x 1 7/8”. 4” taper at each end to 1 1/8”. 4th size I’ve tried.
Thanks Mark and Pete.
Jim, Pottz is right, I didn’t cook the Maple, it came that way. I’m using a few small pieces to try it out. I think it’s okay for what I’ve done but it’s brittle, the baking changed the wood. The pieces in the handle show the Maple is baked right through.

Hi Pottz, when I travel I stop in at a place that cuts up woods from around the world for guitars etc. and buy a box of their scraps for a fixed rate. They usually have a lot of Maple in it, but this time, and for the first time, they had this stuff. I had to ask what it was. Seems fine for what I’m doing and I like the colour contrast.

Bought some Torrefied Maple from Lee Valley some time ago, was in there discount/clearance bin. LOL, think I can remember what for and why? still some nice cut offs kicking around the shop. Much lighter tone.

ROASTED, TORREFIED & THERMALLY MODIFIED
Roasted wood is stable and resistant to humidity and temperature changes.
Hydroscopic cellulose is sealed so wood resists warp and movement.
Stiffness, strength, and integrity of the wood are maintained with no chemicals.
Vibrational testing indicates roasted maple has clearer tone than regular maple.

very nice design on the cheese board. Baked maple, so striking. I use a pin that has one gentle curve, works well,
