After viewing the illusion created by these boards I had to try one. Wood types, ash, walnut, and mahogany.
Size approx. 12” x 18”.

Very nice job.

The grain of the ash really looks like it is the best choice of woods here. I like it.

Outstanding, I was thinking about making the one from the Wood-whisper using Purple Heart but this one is a bit nicer! do you have any measurements for this or a plan? I’m new to wood working.

The cutting board is vey nice. I would like to learn more about the technique used to create the pattern.

This is really dramatic! Could you give us an outline of how you glued it up? Because there is no dividing line anywhere in the piece, it looks like it had to be glued as one giant piece, squeezed from both directions simultaneously. That must have been quite a trick.
Congrats on a beautiful piece.

Astonishing look. It would pain me to cut on it.

As an extra added touch, it appears as though you cut the ash strips from the same piece and kept the grain going. Nice work of art, not a cutting board.

Check out this posting from some time ago by Tony. It is very descriptive and should answer some of the previous questions about size and process.

Great looking piece of artistry that can also second as a cutting board. Viva la difference.
