I did Mr. McLean’s zig zag cutting board but used 8 longer boards. I ended up with plenty of pieces to move around and came up wi these.

Awesome job. I like the pattern. I was hoping to see someone brave enough to give it a whirl. Thanks for the credit.

I was working on another version of Mr. McLean’s original zigzag cutting board when I noticed a small problem in the step 8 illustration. In the text it was stated that you could only make 7 light and dark sticks because your planer is only 12”. But illustration 8 has 8 sticks. It’s not a big deal. I was trying to send this to your eyes only but couldn’t find how to do it . I’m a better woodworker than computer guy. Sorry

Nice variation, think I’ll have a crack at that as well! Nice job!
