WOW, that is beautiful. I still wont to make one of them but have not gotten around to it yet. I love the 3 dimensional look of it.

This turned out well. The 3 dimensional image really comes out on this one. Nice job.

Outstanding, looks great! I am in the process of creating my first tumbling block cutting board; material purchased and milled. Hope I can create one as good as yours!

A request – love how you wrapped the board, gives it an elegant finished look and would like to finish mine in that manner. Please keep us posted on whether the frame cracks/separates due to wood movement. This is a concern I have for the one I want to build due to the humidity fluxuation in my area. Thanks in advance.

As Jim said, this is a beautiful cutting board. Someday I will get the courage to do one.

Yeah, unfortunately a few serious of cracks appeared due to wood movement (coming on and of though). I wonder if the frame is the cause of if it would have happened either way.

That board looks amazing, impressively accurate cuts and glue-up. Unfortunately, gluing long-grain edges to an end grain board will cause different expansions/contractions with humidity and thus cracking over time. But if you keep it well oiled and avoid soaking it in water, it should be stable enough to use.

sleparc, thanks for your reply pertaining to my question on cracking. Interestingly enough, the Wood Whisperer just posted a quick video on this very subject that answers both of our questions. Let me know if this helps. DnD
