A friend and colleague from my laboratory is leaving next week. We’ve worked together for over ten years. I made him a cutting board that was inspired by the pattern on the ugly curtains in our conference room. I hope it will help him remember all the countless hours of boring meetings that we’ve sat through. I made two because I wasn’t sure which variation I would like better. I’m sure I can find someone to give the other one to sometime down the road.

Those are awesome. Nice work. Very complex pattern, but done with a fine touch of precision.

What a great idea to bring the inspiration of the curtains to the pattern on the cutting boards! To give a cutting board such personality and meaning…..now that’s cool! And it will probably bring a smile to his face every time he sees it : ) Beautiful work!

Nice cutting boards. Can you plese show the process for laying them up. The patterns must be infinite with that kind of layup. I’m sure lot of other Lumberjocks wuld like to see how you do that as well.
