This was one of those project that I view here and I just had to try my hand at it….thanks to Larry from down under with his excellent blog on the weave cutting board. I got to try out my new 50 degree frog on my Lie Nielsen No. 4 smoother since the grain on this project goes in all direction. It worked amazing the curly maple just jump out and the board came out nice and flat. A few coat of butcher block oil and it will be wine & cheese time or pizza or sushi or what ever….thanks again Dr. Degoose from Down Under….Blackcherry

Thank you .. nice to see someone thinking outside the box..I had not thought of the different accents of the weave .. very flash..I like it… might I suggest that when cutting the weave keeping them in order of the cut.. ie one short one long one short, then two long and then one short one long and one short to maintain continuity of the grain, ,, it seems that your new LN #4 works handsomely.. well done… looks fabulous. And with such a name for the post I just have to favourite this one,,,,!!!!

Hey, Wilson…I just made a couple checkboards and was considering doing one of these soon. I’ll have to stop by and have an upclose look.

This is a really nice board, Blackcherry. I have been wanting to try one of these. This one certainly is an inspiration.

good work !
looks real good .
when you use a stop , make it for the long one , then cut a spacer to add to stop to get the short one .
that way you can lift out the spacer for the long cut and drop in for the short one .

I’m guessing that you cut small (1x) and large (3x) pieces all planed to same width… etc.

What was your Glue-up procedure?

Type of glue used?

Looks really cool!
