Used a replaceable stop on table-saw to cut strips, two narrow two wide and so on, then roll every other strip 180 then reverse direction of every other set. To avoid slipping when glued up, I glued 4 strips at a time, re-clamped wait then glue 4 more. Still had a little slipping but not bad.
Woods are Cherry, Holly, Wenge, & Rosewood.
Measures 17” x 12” x 3/4”
Finger slots are cut into the ends.

Thanks for looking!

Over-the-top terrific!

Since I’ve made many end-grain boards, I figured out what you did. I just never did anything so intricate and so impressive.

Hats off to you, Sir!

Definitely a “wow!”

To get the chevron pattern, how long was your original blank to get the 17” final length? And … what will you use that off cut for?

Henry, Thanks for looking, the blanks were about 24” long, it was glued up on 45 degree angle so as to not have a lot of waste.
However I have used prior end cuts in this fashion Cheese Board with Wire Knife

Great job! I love the contrast of the Holly against the Wenge. Its amazing how white the Holly is. Im curious how you got the board so flat and smooth?

That is just way too gorgeous! Almost hurts my head to look at it. (-: Well crafted for certain.
