Love the 3-D effect – or more like 3-D effects, the way you can visualize different configurations depending on how you ‘look’ at it. Very nice.

I like the bigger blocks on the bigger board.
More per board.
Both are winners.

Proportion is the name of the game.. large board large blocks and small board small blocks… IMHO
Glad you thought my tip …..about the pre glue up…. worthwhile…well executed…. nice choice of timber and well fiinished.. by doing the infill on the top and bottom…not in style but with the lighter colors makes the cubes more distinct.. well done… I will surely use that Idea in my next boards.. Thanks.
