A simple end-grain cutting board made from Black Walnut, Maple, and Cherry. This piece actually developed a split because of the solid edging that limited any movement. I did repair this crack and it seems to be holding. This failure, while initially terrible, led to my thorough understanding of wood movement. Anyone not familiar should get “Understanding Wood” by Hoadley. (http://www.amazon.com/Understanding-Wood-Craftsmans-Guide-Technology/dp/1561583588)

this is GORGEOUS. I’d love to have something like this in my kitchen.
Wood movement. Hm.. a lesson waiting for me to discover.

(My photography side wants to make this into a large wall mural, it is so beautiful to look at)

I was going to make the board that the wood whisperer has in his podcast, but this is a very interesting idea as well, I think I’ll come up with something else to post for all you guys, nice work man, hope I dont have to have a similar lession in wood movement

I like the fact that all the center cherry pieces are made from the same piece of wood. Check out the grain. Looks great.
