I had some flawed maple and made this end grain board for my wife. I flipped the rows around trying to find a good pattern with the knots. They ended up forming mini HEARTS. She loves me!

Nice! But you are supposed to say you planned it that way. One of the main rules of being a lumberjock: Never fail to take credit for a lucky accident.

I have to agree with Charlie and Puzzled. I had to look at this one since I, for the life of me, could not figure out the title. Great job and nice use of “flawed” wood.

Thanks for the post.

John,
I agree with you, Nature is a great thing. It is remakable the resemblance in our two chop blocks!!
We are 100’s of miles apart and yet it looks like we cut from the same tree,
