This is just a little tip.. not the whole tutorial of how to cut and make a woven board.
Basically you all can make the weave with the two accent stripes on each side.. right.[ ok just a length of the main timber with 2 stripes cut 1/16 or 1/8 ” thick and glued up. see the pics and work it out ]
You can also make the background pieces from the other of the accent timbers the same width as the main weave less the accents.. ok so far.. so I don’t need to go though all that do I? PM me if you need a little more.
This is only to show you the easy way to glue up 31 different size pieces into a square!
.

.

This is a dry fit of all the pieces. I like lots of pics from different angles.

,


.

A lot of little curls of the stripes adds a little festivity to the board. No reason just for fun!!

.


.

These seven small sections can be glued up individually and then the lot glued up and as you can see the length of all the long pieces is equal to the sum of the smaller pieces.
.

.

.

.
Hope this is a clear as I wanted it to be?

Splinter ,man,
I acknowledged that I borrowed the design in the first one I posted here
and here too
but I made them different by the use of different timber and different accent stripes
I share and I copy.. who doesn’t.
Will be using the ubiquitous Tung Oil Finish.,

I have gone through gallons of “Tung Oil” over the years and the finish is still good today.
Rather expensive but worth it for the excellent end result.

I’ve wondered how that was done. I’ll have to give that a try. Thanks for the tips.

Gee, do you think a quarter inch gap is too much when gluing up a cutting board? Good work and thanks for the pics I’ve been wondering but haven’t got around to asking because a cutting board wasn’t on the horizon for me.

Thanks Larry this is my favorite board I’ll be trying one soon with curly hard maple, cherry and walnut. BTW I see you’ve changed your picture I guess your not a physcopath after all… just misunderstood. It’s a cutting board party! Hosted by the Chairman.

RRGR 1/4” gap is nothing if you have lots of glue! Gap in pic is caused by the rough surface of the bench,,cause I don’t have gaps.
