Hello to all the LJ’s out there viewing. What does Ying and Yang mean to me??? I thought of this cutting board design. The basic design is from our good friend Larry (who I am sure has inspired many on this site) with some of my own ideas thrown in. The design and build allow for two constrasting yet complimentary woods to be blended into a very attractive cutting board (Ying and Yang component one). When it comes to cutting and blending the woods, the design calls for gentle arcs. These gentle curves play against the overall rectangle form of the board (Ying and Yang component two). When I was arranging the endgrain, I bookmatched the pieces to create a mirror image. I hope the grain pattern comes through well in the pictures (Ying and Yang component three). The final Ying and Yang component is that this design produces two boards that are “identical opposites” of each other. It might not be the most techincally challanging build but I feel it does contain many Ying and Yang components that play of each other well. Thanks for looking.
