This is a handmade segmented cheese board that is made of the following woods, walnut, sapele, beech and oak and then a handle made from Purple Heart. 

The segments were all cut to the same length then laid in a herringbone pattern and glued and clamped. When dry the clamps were removed and the shape was cut on the bandsaw, then the handle was made and fitted, the board was then sanded with 60, 120 and 240 grit then sanding sealer applied, the board was then sanded up to 1200 grit, then three coats of pure tung oil with a light sanding between coats.
