I have seen some markedly ornate cutting boards here on LJ but this style always intrigued me. I give full credit to MTM Wood for the how to. This Russian fellow has a website where he sells his boards and a YouTube channel that shows how to make many of the fancy styles you see. But unlike him, I do not have a large capacity sliding table saw. Nor do I have a 20” planer. Nor do I have a dual-drum sander.
So here’s now I did it with my 13’ Dewalt planer and my 10” Sawstop. First you start by making some everyday end grain cutting boards. You can use as many colors as you like but DO NOT MAKE THE PATTERN SYMMETRIC or you will not get a crazy, mixed-up pattern.
Three chaotic boards from this build as well as an everyday end-grain board made from extra pieces. Maple, Walnut, Purpleheat, and Cherry. See my blog on how it’s built.

That thing is cool. Looks like the digital camo the US now employs. Needs to go to a military wife.

I’ve gone crazy with the brilliant pattern. Absolutely fancy! Fun build.
