Cubicles - New Cutting Boards

Padauk, maple, and some 'dark brown' scrap.

The pattern looks like 3D cubicles to me.

These took me way too long to do and they have way too many flaws, but I learned a lot and it was fun playing around and coming up with a design and following through with it. Now that these are _finally_ finished, I see variations and improvements on the theme that I want to try.

Beautiful scrap! I love the designs, they are very optical. I think I’d get dizzy if I cut a lot of veggies on these, but they would make beautiful cheese boards or pupu platters. Love them!

Mary Anne, I think you have been eating the woodworker’s equivalent of Popeye’s spinach. Your projects keep getting better and better. These are just “WOW”!
