A 14” chaotic cheese board. 2nd try at it and I found a few ways to make it easier. Only made from small scraps.

A spalted Maple bowl that was cored from a larger bowl. 10.5” X 3.5”.

20” X 1.875” pin. 1.125” at the end with a 4” taper. I don’t know how many I have made with this pattern but it sure is popular. Maple and Walnut.

All have a food safe finish.

That is a nice looking set. That platter is wonderful with the different woods. And the rolling pin is over the top. There is some nice grains popping out of the bowl. Well done.

That cutting board is sweet.

Thanks guys!

Dave, I used waste pieces to make the shorter strips longer which made the final glue up easier. That way it didn’t bother me when I cut them off on the bandsaw. I turned the board edge this time (half at a time). Last time I was real careful on the belt sander.
