Cutting board with bird inlay (purple heart, black walnut, maple)

Now also oiled, waxed and polished. The birds are kind of tiny and could have been better, but I guess now after filling all the gaps only I can see that. :stuck_out_tongue: I really like how it turned out, especially the patterns of the wood. If you turn it, it looks a bit like those high curch windows. :smiley:


Stunner! :sunglasses:

This time I didn’t even forget the tag. :stuck_out_tongue:

A banana might help (for scale).
Jokes aside it would be nice to have something to give us an appreciation for how tiny.

Don’t sweat that - after a few months of being hacked with a meat cleaver even you won’t notice. It looks fantastic, and the patterns in the grain are sensational.
