I found a set of cutting boards that a member made that a really liked. I think the only difference was that I used ash and walnut. The boards range in size from 8,10 and 12 inches wide to 12, 15, 18 inches long. The walnut dowels were made on a router using a beading bit. The splines are pegged. I used Watco butcher block oil for the finish. Nice little project for a Christmas gift. Thanks go out to member SCBryan.

Here is a quick video on how it was made. YouTube video link

Very nice, love the look. did you glue the Walnut splines or just use the pegs to hold it all together? If you just used the pegs did you glue them?
Thanks for sharing and the help!!

Very nice Gregg. I like the splined Walnut pieces. Nice change from the traditional/obligatory end grain boards.

They kinda look like runner sleds. Is that the idea?

Good looking boards, whatever the case may be….

Beautiful! They would look extra good on a sail boat. Either way I love the design. My wife loves them too and she doesn’t like the geometrical patterned ones, considering them optical overload.

What keeps these boards from splitting out because of wood movement? I thought the walnut splines would have elongated holes to allow for movement, but you didn’t seem to do that

Love these. I’m with Mike, some of the geometric are too much for me to look at. This design is gorgeous.

You are correct, the outside holes of the splines were elongated. It just doesn’t show in the video.

Outstanding cutting boards Gregg! I think that there is going to be a lot of theft of SCBryan’s design lol! The ash an walnut offset each other beautifully. And I just happen to have a few 8/4 planks of each. Hmmm. Now if I can get the wife’s kitchen island done this month, I can make these in time for Xmas!

Thanks for the vid too. Great work!
