I also did this project in shop class. It took about a month to make this. I cut 1 in strips, 1/2 in strips, 3/4 in strips and made a pattern with them. Then i glued them together. Then i cut 1 in strips from it. Then i flipped every other one to make that design. Then i had to glue them together. It was bowed really bad so we had to put a metal piece between the wood at the clamps to make them stay together. After it dried i had to sand it all flat then i took a router and rounded the edges. After that i took mineral oil and put 7 coats of it on there.

Nice board!

How big is it? It looks like you could put a whole side of beef on it, and have room to spare. :)
