Cool! They look great. Cutting boards?? What ever, they’re cool.

Very Small cutting boards,, only 6” across. Could be used to put hot pots and and on.. or a teapot? A Trevit?

Matt, Tumbling Blocks refers to the pattern [ originally a quilting pattern] but made famous by Robin aka woodmosaics

That is very very cool. I have seen that design in pictures but never with wood. You did a excellence job.

works really well, fooled my eyes even after I knew it was flat. When it’s photographed from the side my eyes jump between the blocks and the diamonds, when it’s photographed from above I can’t find the diamonds at all.
nice job.
