Striking pattern. But, sort of a lot of work for something to go whacking on with a sharp metal implement. But then, I’m probably not above doing something like that myself. LOLRoger

That is a great piece and while I agree with Roger above about marking it up I’m also not sure that is what I want to be looking at while using a sharp knife. It could be hard to focus on you fingers.

Roger, Les – it is really not that hard to make once you know the trick. Cut alternating wood strips 18” long starting at 1/8” wide and increasing the width by 1/16th until you get to 5/8” and then decrease by 1/16th back to 1/8th. Do this twice and glue up the 34 strips. Then crosscut in the same manner and flip every other one.
I like the pattern a lot but agree that you could end up with extra protein in your salad if not careful.

Great cutting board. I agree with Roger and Les, that’s too pretty and distracting to cut on. I’d frame it and give it as a wall-hanging. I very much reminds me of M.C. Escher.

That looks really great, the illusion is amazing. Never heard of thermally treated ash… sure gives it a nice dark color. Is it an end grain board?
