Default A cutting board

A friend asked me to make a cutting board with an inlay. I was going to do a silver wire inlay, but when I told my buddy how much it would cost, he decided against it. By this time I was already jazzed about making the board, so I went ahead and made it for myself without a wire inlay. One of these days, I'm going to do a wire inlay in something. Maybe a knife handle.

This cutting board is walnut and padauk with maple and walnut accents.

That is very nice. I think a wire inlay on a knife would be cool. Wire on a cutting board that my knife blade is going across doesn't sound so good.

There would be a display side and a cutting side, so you wouldn’t cut on the wire inlay.

I don't know. This is my first one, and I made it for myself, although I may give it to my brother. And I have to use my brother-in-law's tools to make them because I don't have the tools, and that adds an extra burden. So I guess I'm going to have to decline making any cutting boards for anybody. Sorry.

Did you stain that wood red? I am going to make a diploma frame for my wife, TTU, and want to inlay red into a black frame

No, it's padauk. It's naturally that colour. Sometimes it's a little more orange, and sometimes it's a little more brown.

That is awesome. Does padauk come in more of a purple tint as well? Perhaps my brain is failing me.

I've never seen it with a purple tint. Or, if I have, maybe I mistook it for being purple heart.

I found this on the ol' googler. Haven't even thought about padauk in thirty years, but the stuff I used was flat out purple. . .don't even remember the brown part. Don't be surprised if yours turns purple! Will look great either way.

Padauk Overview
LATIN: PTEROCARPUS SOYAUXII ORIGIN: WEST AFRICA

Padauk is an exotic wood that is a bright orange or almost crimson wood when freshly cut, but oxidizes to a darker, rich purple-brown over time - although it stays redder than Indian Rosewood. Slightly harder and heavier than Indian Rosewood it is a good wood in all respects - stable, and easy to work with. It often grows in small groups and is reported to be common in dense equatorial rain forests.
