Inlaid - or other design ideas - for an endgrain chopping board
I have made my brother a few endgrain chopping boards and his daughter really liked them. This same daughter just got married - and I promised her an endgrain board. (The board would be used for cutting bread only so would not get wet.) But I wanted something special.
Turns out that she and her husband designed a monogram for their wedding, made up of a few hebrew letters as shown in the picture. (Ignore the checkered background - its just the letters.)
I would like to set this pattern into an end grain board. Any ideas? It seems too complex to make separate laminations of different colors and glue them back together so that the pattern comes together (as you would do for a chess board or other more geometric design.)
I've thought about using a router using a template - will that work out OK in this situation because I'll be routing into end grain?
Any other ideas of how to do this?
Thanks for your thoughts.
