I offer this cutting board in appreciation of the posts (and fantastic work) from degoose who inspired me to attempt this project. I’ve never done anything like this before and thanks to his tutorial, I finally made the attempt.
After a false start or two, I was quite pleased with the result of this one.

Five months ago I could never have imagined that I could create anything remotely resembling the artistry that I have seen on Lumberjocks and every day I continue to be in awe of the creations that are presented here. I applaud every single post from every single aspiring woodworker and all of the artists represented here.

Thanks,

-- Dennie - Tennessee

Not only is Degoose a fine craftsman he is also highly productive. He’s a good man to follow and learn from. You did a good job on this, Dennie.

Woven wood is an eye catcher and this one does that! Larry won’t be upset as imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

”Not only is Degoose a fine craftsman he is also highly productive.”
That is so true. I can’t tell you how many times I had to watch his video before doing this board!
Also, this morning I had to google “chuffed” just to make sure that I wasn’t upsetting him! Whew!
Thanks Larry (degoose) !!

I took another look at your post and checked out the tutorial again after so many great feedback comments.

I still do not think I have the equipment or the skills to even attempt this project.
Far too much accuracy required and intimate ability to cut repetion sections as per degoose’s post.
Its beyond my capabiliies (and mindset) at the moment.

You still did a fantastic job, and may be later I ‘may” try but for the time being I am happy to leave it to the experts.

Just goes to show with the right mentoring and the mind set the ability to attempt such a complex job, it can be done.
