David, is that an illusion, or is it high and low surface? I can't get my eyes to switch to a flat surface. I have never seen a "bumpy" cutting board, but my mind just can't seem to make it look flat. In any event,great job. What kind of woods did you use?
I agree it should be hung on the wall and just looked at.
You mean it was suppose to be FLAT?
No body said FLAT !!
I had looked at it so much as I made it, I did not see the illusion of bumps anymore, Sandra had to convince me that it looked wavy.
This was made from the scrap woods I ordered a while back from both Amazon and Ebay. They came in assortments of lengths and types of woods.
The light colors are from two different woods, one of which I know was hard maple, but the other was just off from that color and not marked as to type.
One of the center woods is Walnut and the other I believe is Cherry or some kind of red wood. Very hard.
After finishing the whole thing, my shop was covered in a fine pink dust. When I emptied my dust bin, the top of the bin was pink and at an inch down it turned white,
It took three different glue ups and had to be cut twice plus the final trimming of the ends to square it all up.
I think I am going to look for a planner if I ever decide to make more of these, I wore out two belt sander belts on this.
Any ideas on a decent one with out breaking the bank?
