bamboo cutting board. Mineral Oil finish. Pieces are cut into 3/4×3/4×1 1/2 blocks from 3 ply amber bamboo then glued in a shop made jig. Total size is 11 3/4×11 3/4×1 3/8. As always I welcome constructive criticism.

Wow! that is amazing. Beautiful. I can’t even imagine how long it took you to glue all those pieces together.
Great job.

Beautiful, I have some 3/4” Bamboo hardwood flooring that I’m thinking about turning into a cutting board or two. I have not decided yet which way I will set it up, long grain or end grain. Any tips or recommendations?

I like it. No criticism this part of the world.

Wow, now that, right there, is a lot of time, patience, and glue!

Very nice board… very nice!

Very well done, I’d be interested to see a pic of the shop made jig used for the glue-up.
