I call this Picasso’s cutting board. A riff on the ‘chaotic’ design where the chaos design is broken into squares which gives it an interestingly predictably random pattern. The sides are also cut on slight angles instead of square to fit the theme of the board.

All end grain, just under 2 inches thick. Created with a mix of hard woods while playing around with some different designs. It is reversible with one side having a juice groove.

wow, that really is pretty impressive. Although it looks like something that was just randomly thrown together, I can only imagine how much time was actually put into that.

Nice idea to repeat a random pattern – turned out very well!

Thanks for showing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Truly a Picasso CB, I think he would have been proud of this personification! Really nice work!
