I have seen others make the boxes and thought you might like to see different interpretations of them. bigogre has done several.

Garden Avenue boxes

03-27-2010 05:44 PM by BritBoxmaker | 10 comments »

Thirty years ago three of my work collegues and I rented a house in a place called Garden Avenue. To commemorate this I decided to make a limited edition box set, one for each of us. The top design came first. I decided on a red, black and white design. The woods used were Padauk, Ebony and Sycamore (same family as Maple). First thing was to plane of the woods to the same thickness. These were then cut into 6mm strips and arranged. This arrangement was glued up into a block. ...

And there is a silent auction coming up next week for my Sister’s battle with cancer, so this will be part of that. Here is the current board (on the left) along with the original: What I learned building the second one, is that the...

Cutting Board: How To's #2: Zig Zag Cutting Board Patterns - Inspirational

10-05-2010 09:19 PM by McLeanVA | 22 comments »

I was absolutely overwhelmed by the positive response to my Zig Zag How To blog post yesterday, that I decided to brainstorm some possible combinations (on my lunch break) using the basic steps I outlined yesterday. All of the same techniques and steps apply, and really the only difference is the woods and measurements that make up the original “sticks.” Same rules apply to width = height. Length is up to you. Please experiment with whatever measurements and combinations strike...

For those of you who asked me for a tutorial on how to make the zig zag legless vegetable death table (cutting board), here is my best shot. I am far too impatient to take photos when I work, so I decided to illustrate the process using some good old Adobe PhotoShop. I hope you find this useful and informative.
