I wonder if Michelangelo ever said “Yet another painting”. That’s a unique pattern and a beautiful piece of work. Thanks for posting.

Fantastic board. Lots of god color/wood choices here in a wonderful pattern.

Keep it up.

Larry, I have mixed feelings. on the one hand its petroleum rubbish. On the other hand, its incredibly easy to apply and preserves the colours. well, nothing is perfect. On some timbers walnut and tung oil bring out more depth to the grain.

I like it. Is it all table saw work? Looks fiddly.

Daniel, this is all tablesaw work. Having said that, this pattern is the hardest I make (other than the small tumbling blocks). It requires good tablesaw and steel nerves while gluing
I also use one of these cute digital bevel boxes to set the blade angle. a drum sander is also something you will not regret….
There were blogs about making endgrain cutting boards, but if you want to reproduce this one, let me know and I will PM you details.

Great Board. What are the three angles. They work well together.
