The name refers to the way the pattern looks to me,.
This board is made from the last strips of the timber I bevel rip cut to make some Tumbling Block Endgrain Butcher Blocks.
When I ripped the wide boards these were the pieces left over so I just did a glue up and then cross cut and rolled and rotated and glued up again..Very Similar to the way a normal endgrain board is made but with some 60 degree bevels thrown in for fun, not quite as adventurous as 15 degrees of separation
Can you guess what timber I used? No, then I will tell you LOL no I won’t. Same as always. SA NGR and PH
Hope you like this and take heed and look at things a little differently. This took 4 times the inspiration. Not Really!
Last Pic Is For You Eddy. Happy Birthday. This is what the pieces were left over from if you were wondering what to do with them, hey.
Don’t Worry, Be Happy, Have Fun and Enjoy Life!

You’re the only one I know that can “slap” some left over pieces together and turn out a cool looking cutting board!! Nice work

Name got me there for a minute … thought you guys might be playing drinking games without me over here!!! lol

It’s bad enough that you look at someone else’s cutting board and think man, mine looks like crap … but when you look at someone else’s cutting board that they made from scraps and think that … lol

::: shakin’ my head :::

In all seriousness … Nice job!!!!

Larry, as always your ingenuity never ceases to surprise me. You have taken pieces, which I probably would have simply tossed, and created a unique, and certainly original, cutter.

Maybe I should try some “Gold” inspiration and see what I can come up with!! :)

One man’s scrap is – well another man’s cutting board.

Great job Larry.

How do you do it Larry? What a beautiful cutting board. If I send you my scraps can you assemble them into something similar and return them? I just can’t get my head around how you geometry wizards manage to design those things.
