Project Information

I love working on these boards when I get a chance. Cherry , Walnut , Maple , and Purple Heart make the perfect alternating patter. I am working on several other variations to experiment with different contrasting lumbers. This definitely exposes you to different lumber. Working with some African and Brazilian species for the next one!

Very well done. Nice color combo !
There's no end to them once you get started.
Don't forget to add some figured wood to the mix to spice things up: )

amazing work dusty56

i would love to know what you did to get that luster. Is that a food grade product?

Yes, that is food grade Mineral Oil. I had snapped the pictures as it was soaking in. That is why it looks so shiny in the photo. I use it as it doesn't add any color to the wood, just brings them to life, and is also easily applied by my customers when the board needs to be replenished.

Keep up the good work : )
