I’ve seen a lot of interesting and creative cutting boards on this site. I decided to try one of my own.

People who know me and my work will realize that this is not my normal style. Maybe that’s why I made it. I wanted to step out of my comfort zone.

This is walnut and maple and how I made this should be obvious. The strips of wood start with a minimum thickness of 1/8th of an inch and each subsequent strip goes up by 1/16th of an inch over the previous one.

Finished with Salad oil

Vaeary cool! I love it when people step in another direction. I just know you had fun matching up the maple and walnut pieces at their ends.

KnotCurser – The “45s” are actually “60s”. I initially the straightest, truest cut I could on the TS. Then I made on pass of each edge on the jointer. Everything lined up almost perfectly. A very slight gap at one end was filled in with some wood filler. The hardest part was the final gluing.

I used some biscuits. I think you need that with end grain to end grain.
