Can’t mess up a Chevron pattern anytime but I like this one the best so far. Strips cut at a 30 degree bevel with the center piece made first by resawing and building from there. I glued a 51 inch plank which gives me one end grain board 1 5/8 thick and the other 1 inch thick at 12 X 13 . When cutting the plank keep the strips back to back to keep the pattern-book match lined up which can wonder a bit. Walnut Maple Cherry wood was used. The pictures show two versions with the Czech Knot. The center piece glued up is maple-walnut strip-maple and after that dries cut opposite direction to add the second walnut strip. This takes a lot of clamps since the boards want to creep up on each other with the 30 degree bevel.

Wow, I’m amazed by your work! The center has me perplexed. I’ve got to figure out how you did that.

The central knot pattern is an eye catcher. How did you do that?

This is my second look. I asked how you made the fine pattern in the center. Your third image is worth a thousand words. Congrats on a well deserved daily top 3.
