Daughter came home for a visit and asked if we could make a cutting board. I said sure but let’s try something challenging. It’s all done except for the mineral oil. Now with oil it really darkened and brought out the color. She’s happy so I’m happy but I bet I’ll have to convince her to use it. I offered to put a picture hanger on the back as a joke.

Very nice work.
That is a tough design to get it as tight as you did.
Good job.

Used Walnut, Red Oak and Poplar. Toughest part was gluing up. Just plain hard to get trapezoids to not squeeze this way or that way. Then once you get them into a triangle you go bonkers looking at two different types to make sure they’re facing the right way. Grumpy Mike yes 30 (or 60) degrees is the magic angle. With a ratio of 2:1 from bottom to sides or top of the trapezoid. Looks like SPALM has it all on his post. for reference.
