Used scraps to create this cheese board for a gift (wife calls it “charcuterie board”). Had to cut the inlays freehand with jigsaw since I don’t have a proper bandsaw which attributes to the lines not flowing perfectly but not bad for 1st attempt. If you research this technique from much better woodworkers than myself, you will see the use of a pattern cutting bit and router will result in cleaner lines. Also will compensate for the width of the inlay so as not to offset the previous inlays. Cherry, Maple for the field with maple and bubinga edges. Used a breadboard edge technique to cover endgrain, however I probably should have ran the breadboard past the maple edge to allow for expansion. Hopefully the oil/wax finish will minimize wood movement. Guess I can always repair if it becomes a problem.
