Maple. Cherry, Walnut.
rustin oil finish.

I came up with this new pattern for a 3d effect of end grain cutting board.
the gluing was really hard. very slippery when you clamp it. you can see noticeable screw-ups. but i guess that now that the concept is proven, all that needed is to improve the technique.

Hope you like it guys, and thanks for the continious inspiration for these boards.

Very cool design on that first one pictured. I don’t see any glue-up flaws though.

I really like these patterns , these must be very time consuming to make. Good work. I bet if you ask, someone has a good solution on how to make gluing these up easier.

I love that design, and can imagine the glue up difficulties.
Great job though.
Thanks for sharing.

I love the weave one because it looks like the wood is actually woven.
The main photo makes me wonder how you cut the pieces?
