Do you have pix of the prototype?

What kind of wood are you using?

Sorry JohnnyK, we've been at a show since Thursday and missed this post. Will post pics of the first prototypes. Was planning to use either maple or walnut. What wood would you recommend?

Ya know my two cents is that with the kiln being in the house I would pick something else to do as a project and spend the three hundred on a vent designed for your kiln. The drilling is just a few holes on top and bottom and just like drilling into sheetrock. Make sure to read the kiln manu instructions on hole placement if u go that route. It is really important to get those gases outside properly and the problem with coming up with ur own solution could fail and you not really know it.

actually trying both ways but prototyping a new product so will be doing 20 -30 at a time so no matter how close I know there will be a gap here and there, hopefully small but want the finish work to be clean and neat. I will try both grout and sealer. Bummer that whatever I use will eventully pull away though.

I am trying to keep the board as one piece with inlayed tile instead of building a frame around it. Building the frame is the plan B but will make it more expensive to do an I am trying to keep the finished product just under $50

Thanks everyone, sounds like grout is the solution. Actually I mispoke Marcia it is a cheese board.

I am worried about using grout though if the product would only last several years.
