This is an endgrain cutting board made out of maple, cherry, and walnut. I described the build process in a blog. It is a second generation board of this type for me.
I have included pics of the four rotations of the board. I find it interesting how it is seen differently in the four views.
The last picture is a Sketchup of the different types of these boards as I see them. The Tumbling Block, my first Steps block, Martyn’s They Might be Giants, and then two examples of this style of block. I had tried for a while to make this block out of three pieces of wood, but ended up making the buildup of 6 pieces. As the groupings on the bottom of this picture show, they all share some similarity while all having their own advantages.
It was a fun build, but a fairly hard glue-up.
