Eddy great job but the one thing I found with the picture was if you use it as one of those pictures where you have to look at it cross eyed to see the image you get a totally different view of the picture. Give it a try its very interesting.

Nicely done. It would be interesting now to take it up a notch and make a more 3 dimensional object out of it, such as cabinet doors or a box top.

funny you say that as that what this was a test for it is only 1/2 inches thick i was thinking doors on a cabinet or something like that.this one will have a 1/2 inch piece of maple or something glued to the back so it can be fliped to that side and be used as a cutting board and not cut up this side

Degoose has mentioned he was going to do a blog on how he made end grain tumbling blocks, so keep an eye out for that.

I don’t believe degoose is working the same way woodmosiac is. I was talking to him about making these and it sounds like the steps he takes is:
1. Have three types of wood planed to exactly the same thickness.2. Set your table saw bevel angle at 60 degrees.3. Rip the first 60 degree cut with the cutoffs away from the fence.4. Move the fence over the width one diamond side plus the kerf of the blade.5. Cut another 60 degree cut and repeat. To create long diamond shaped boards6. Cross cut these boards to the thickness desired (thickness of cutting board) and glue them together.

gwebb the above procedure is for the endgrain style,project 15974, not the way Robin[ woodmosaics]. makes them,, his are long grain and only 3/16 ” thick and he uses them as a style of veneer on a ply substrate.And yes I will be doing a blog on both ways, when I find time LOLthanks for the comments eddy and the board looks fabulous.
