I normally wouldn’t bother posting a cutting board, but I’m really happy with the way this turned out. I know it’s been done before but I had to see if I could do it.

Walnut / Maple / Mahogany. One coat salad bowl finish and then rubbed with beeswax / mineral oil mix.

Added photo of arrangement before glue up.

The only problem is every time you chop something you will be saying, waka waka waka waka in your head. Good job.

Very cool.
I’m still trying to figure out how you did this. It looks like the end grain is up like you should have on a cutting board. Therefore is it lots of little pieces glued together or did you somehow make strips and turn them end grain up before gluing?

Thanks everyone!

It is and end grain board, forgot to mention that. ohwoodeye, I did make a bunch of little strips. Then glued them into panels that run from the top to bottom of the board, flipped them to glue up the end grain board. If that makes sense. It turned out to be a lot more work than I planned.

This is a really awesome cutting board. The colors work really well together. As a gamer this would go on my wall.
