This one of two projects I made today.. wanted to think outside the box. I know someone has probably already done this but I did it anyway. This is endgrain butcher block [bevel cut at 60? degrees ] with an edgegrain boarder splined and double mitre splined.
Timber used was Queensland Maple and Tasmanian Blackwood with the double mitre splines in Purpleheart.
Size is 11’ by 14” by 1 1/4”. I think next time I will make it twice that size.

Larry, I have seen a lot of cutting boards but this one is certainly unique. Nice job of thinking outside the box on this one.

I woke up at 4 AM the other day and couldn’t wait to get out to the shed and get started on it..all up took 8 Hours including drying time. I got the idea I think from the chevron / zigzag boards I make.. so just bevel cut the timber and joined and cut again and glued again and then?
And now for something completely different!
What’s next? I don’t know YET will wake up with a newish design and go from there

I use a product made here in OZ called “Hard Burnishing Oil”.. oil that is then heat burnish with fine grit [320 up to 1200] wet and dry glass paper on a random orbit sander. and then finish with another Ozzie product called ” Wood Wipe. ”. A combination of nut and citrus oils.. You wipe on buff off with clean cloth. Both products ore organic and food safe and made by a company called “Organoil”
