Over the weekend I was able to complete a couple more dining table puzzle displays…can be used as hot pot trivet fir a large meals or if your hosting a wine tasting party can be used as small charcuterie plates that hold your wine glass as you mix and mingle. Follow me on Instagram @dugas.aaron

Curious if you cut these into the puzzle pieces with a scroll saw, or do you use a bandsaw with say, a 1/8” blade?
Not sure I could make myself cut up a perfectly good cutting board into pieces, since one mistake and you’re done!

BTW, they look really great!

1st attemp was bandsaw and scroll saw but left pieces to sloppy…2nd attempt was have a laser cut template and used router and template bite due to gain direction changes had lots of blow out….3rd attempt was cnc but after sanding machine marks out pieces were sloppy..4th was over size on cnc and sand to snug fit pick the whole thing up like regular cutting board now.

The actual blank to make these was twice as long in order to get the pattern to match and stay consistent. The scraps are being turned into set of coasters…took 4 months off and on to perfect this to be what you see.

Great idea. I wonder if you cut the boards on the scroll saw with the table slanted to one side it would keep the pieces from falling apart when you pick it up?

the pictures post are fit pretty snug. you can pick these two boards up as one piece without falling apart. It does have a slight sag in the Middle but stays together…i would run a marathon with it this way though :-)
