I have ventured into the cutting board world. I thought that some leaded glass designs of Frank Lloyd Wright would make a nice cutting board pattern. It is modeled roughly after his “sumac” design. This one is done is oak, maple and walnut and finished with Linseed Oil.

Nicely done on the design aspects of that board. I like the grain orientations you used.

Great job! I’m a big Wright fan and admirer of his glass work. You should do more of these.

Well done.
