I designed this cutting board pattern last week while trying to come up with some kind of 3D design. This is the result. It is made out of walnut, cherry, and maple. I glued up the walnut sticks with mitered cherry and maple sides. I then routed notches along the length of these sticks. Next they were crosscut to the thickness of the board. Finally these pieces were glued together, sanded smooth, and oiled.

I wrote a build log here which details all the steps.

I look forward to seeing any copies or variations of this design.

Thanks for looking,
Steve

Wow Steve, I was staring at the pattern and I think I entered into a trance. That is a great board sir, thanks for the blog log I will have to attempt one of these for a Christmas gift this year.

Great project Steve. It came out awesome! Thanks for the blog log, which I have favorited, if that is a word. I have never made a cutting board. Perhaps I will venture into that realm with this one.

Great work Steve. You know, people make fun about all the cutting boards people post here but, I believe that Lumberjocks has advanced the art of cutting boards beyond anything you see anywhere else and this is a fine example of what I mean. Keep pushing the envelope you guys.

Best,

-- Jim
