Here is another project I recently completed. It’s a chaotic style end grain cutting board. Paduke,walnut, hard maple and cherry. Approx. 18” X 24” X 2 2/4”. It’s a beast. The new owner calls it her prep station.

I like chaos! looks like you have proven that there is no such thing as scrap wood and done it beautifully.

Thanks for the comments. This thing is so big it should have its own Zipcode. I call it, “The Beast.”

Dang, that puppy needs a big eyebolt in the center so you can lift it with a heavy chain, attached to a forklift. Seriously is the “The new owner calls it her prep station” a female weight lifter?

Nice looking board there. Thanks for posting.

Damn, that an unkillable unit right there. I have always wanted to make one of those chaotic ones, but it seems like it might take me all year. A ton of work must go into one of those.

This is a very nice cutting board and I like the random nature of the pattern.

Now that’s a serious cutting board! How long did it take you to make it?

That’s a thick board in the first pic. Did you bandsaw it into a few separate boards?

Great board and unlimited patience to put all those random pieces together.

I have made smaller versions using a variety of left over scraps. I usually make them extra thick and then cut them in half on the band saw to produce two identical boards. With all the time it takes to glue those random pieces together I get twice the benefit that way.

The first photo is a bit misleading. That is a bunch of 6” long segments stacked together to make it look bigger. The finished project is actually three separate chaotic glue ups all glued up together. For each of the three boards there were five glueupd. Everything if done long grain except the final glueup. That is when it becomes a end grain board.

Have your say...
