That’s gorgeous! I’ve been studying the “3D” effect for cutting boards and this one is awesome. Are those individual blocks glued up?

Hotncold, the pieces are 5/16 inch thick they are glued to a piece of 3/4 birch plywood. I have a pencil line horizontal and vertices to align the pieces to
I hot glue them to the plywood,trim the edges then wrap with a border. I will try to post other pics if I can

Your skills are very apparent. Precise cuts and lots of patience during the glue up. A grand display of your craftsmanship.

I know this post has been around for awhile, but I just found it and had a question for you. I think you said you hot glue the pieces to the plywood (I would guess the plywood becomes your backer board), but was wondering if you wood glue the pieces together or does the hot glue and the border hold them?

Hi Larry, I do not glue the pieces to each other. I find that the hot glue on the bottom suffices. When it’s all glued down and the border is on-even though everything is pretty tight I mix a batch of fine sawdust and glue together and apply all over the board pressing into the butt seams. Then I sand it thoroughly. You can lightly run pencil marks over the whole project so you know the depth of you’re sanding prior to the sawdust glue mixture. Hope this answers you’re question
