Simple clean borders on this extra thick board. This board is made from maple and black walnut. The board is 100% end grain which makes the board approximately 3 times harder than face grain. The maple is constructed in a chaotic random pattern (process of cutting, dicing up, and re-gluing 4 times). The two boarders are made from the same walnut board for a consistent tone. Routed in handles. Sanded thru drum sander 120, then used orbital sander and sanded up to 2500 grit. Coated with mineral oil and beeswax mixture. I’ll add rubber feet w stainless steel screws after a day of oil drying. Measures 13.5×18.5×2.25”.

Wow, that is striking! Nice job. I’m remembering the chaotic maple for the future.

The chaotic maple is especially attractive. This is really beautiful work.

The Black Walnut and Maple combination always looks so good to me! Chaotic boards are my favourite too.

Nice board. I also love that wood combo for an eye catcher.

Great job, these are my favorite boards to make with the walnut border. I’ve done chaos boards but never considered doing it with all maple. Thx for sharing.
