Maple, cherry, and walnut.

It’s our take on the standard pattern. SWMBO specifically requested that I not cut off the edges. We met halfway on that one.

My take on the feet. No need for finger cutouts. Still needs another coat of oil and some wax.

I actually built three of these. The other two are larger (12×18) Christmas gifts for the sons/dils. Here’s hoping they enjoy them.

Looking forward to seeing that next steak resting on this one.

Have a great day!

11/14/2020 update: I made three more of these, just a tad bit longer to gain some symmetry. The colors and contrast on the new batch really popped.

Nice look. I’m wondering how that scalloped edge is going to wear though?

Very very nice. I’ve been putting one of these off for a while now. Where did you find the design?

Me too. Wife’s idea. I strongly opposed, but she would not give up.

Very very nice. I ve been putting one of these off for a while now. Where did you find the design?

- Andybb

There’s a couple different methods to make this one. I followed the guidance provided by “Sawdust In My Coffee”. Creating perfect hexagons in the method I chose is a challenge.

MTM Wood” is the other one. I thought the extra vertical glue joints in the MTM Wood version detracted form the 3D effect.
