A Wedding Present
Furnished content.

I made this end grain cutting board and stand for my niece's wedding next weekend. It took a LOT longer than I expected to do the inlays, so it's a good thing I started early. No matter what I did the male portion for the lettering kept breaking out. I tried ebony, then bloodwood, I tried different speeds. Nothing worked. So I finally gave up and poured colored epoxy into those recesses. The Celtic marriage knot came out great with a bloodwood inlay, however.

The board is end grain walnut that I had to dye to mask the ugly sapwood. The field of the insert is quarter sawn beech, which is beautiful stuff to work with on the CNC. The stand is 5/8" Baltic birch that snaps together, so it can be broken down for storage or shipping.
