Saw this on line so I decided to Make one. It is made from scraps of wood of Cherry, Walnut, maple and a couple others thrown in the mix. Some of the scraps are hardwood flooring scraps. One problem…I don’t want to cut on it. This is how it is done.

This is very interesting and it appears to be well made. I hope you can provide more information about how you made this.

can’t figure this one out. One would take a life time to fit that many pieces together.

I get it, one needs a store full of clamps. Now if you could figure out how to glue all that multi colored sawdust together you would have another fantastic cutting board to hang on the wall as a work of art. Better than Picasso.

Chaotic order I would call it. I bet you don’t want to cut on it, I wouldn’t either.

That is a lot of work. I actually like yours better than the ones in the video. Great job!

I did do an extra angle cut and one more straight cut than the video. It gave it little slivers that look cool. I also only cut so it keeps one side to display.

Have your say...
