I saw this cutting board on Pinterest the other day and decided to give it a try. It is made from Walnut, Cherry, Hard Maple, and Burma Padauk. It was a challenge to get the lines all lined up, I have a few slight errors, but I think it came out good. I have made a rolling pin to go with it, but the finish on it is not done yet. I’ll post it later in the week .

Thanks Guys, It came out darker than the one I saw on Pinterest. The cherry I used came from a pallet of cherry cutoffs from a furniture factory, It all is very dark, I hope it doesn’t get any darker.

Very well done, John. I believe I saw the same picture that inspired your project and I also drew up plans to attempt this pattern of board. Thank you so much for sharing. It looks awesome.
