Mixed wood species, dowel, and lap joint border. Tried something different, but need to work on this type of bordering. Lap joint was almost perfect, slight gap in one corner.

iPad loads pictures upside down for some reason.

Finished with several coats mineral oil, and mineral oil beeswax mix.

Beautiful color arrangement. I think my next board will be like this one. I’ve only built end grain boards so far mainly because it seems like that’s the best for longevity and easier on the knives…. However, most the boards I’ve made and given to people haven’t really been used because they say “it’s too nice to cut on…” even though I explain to them that it’ll last for a very long time due to it’s design. I think if most end up using them for decor rather than actual cutting you can get a much more beautiful look by using the long grain like this one.

Either way they’re fun to build and each have their own personality. Nice touch with the lap joint border.

Great colors. I like the idea of putting your own twist in it. Too many of us fail to do so.

I need to do end grain boards, but I don’t have a good drum sander to really get it flat. I tried one, and I think I rushed it because I was experimenting and had bumps, pieces uneven, and not enough good clamps. I bought some new clamps that will keep the pieces flat and tight to each other. I think my next board will be end grain, and thick like 1.5 to 2 inches.

It’s a marvelous work! The color set up is just undeniably amazing!
