Wood sandwich

Got started on a new commission today after classes. I am making an endgrain cutting board with an integral bowl to match an Alaskan Ulu knife. I’m using walnut, sycamore and jatoba. After resawing, thickness sanding and cutting to length, I glued up the 11 layer sandwich. Tomorrow, I’ll joint the glued edges, cut it up, and reglue again, building up a mosaic pattern. Then, into a jig for some faceplate turning to create the bowl. Then, more glue up to form the rest of the board. (Hm, wonder if I can get sponsorship from Titebond?)
