Thank You SPalm for the excellent tutorial. I will build a cutting board with this design, but I think I will need to choose a better combination of wood types. I had some left over purple heart and maple from my WoodWhisperer inspired cutting boards, and found some cherry left over from my daughters spindle bed.
I like the look of the cherry, the end grain is so tight it almost looks like it is a machine finish.
I hope you all like it. I made it to find out how hard it would be, with the tools on hand, and as a prototype prior to making a cutting board.
One of the issues I will have to remedy is that the tips of the triangles break off easily when scraping off the excess glue. The broken tips didn’t become visible to these old eyes until after the finish was applied. Next time I will wet it down before finish, and fix any open areas.
Look forward to your comments,

Mel,
I like it a lot your triangle tips look fine to me but then I didn’t make it and we all know that we are our worst critic. I like the pattern too.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the comments. The tips that break off appear as little whitish green spots in the pics.

Denappy, it’s not my design and if you want to know how to do it check out SPalms blog. It is very well thought out and laid out in text with pictures. Click here.

Great work, these are some cleaver ideas they come up with & share with us. You have done very well for your first complicated board. I did a trial run on the tumbling blocks and found some areas I need to work on. Look fwd to seeing more!

I think it looks fantabulous!

The beveled edging looks really great. And your wood selection looks fine to me. It is always interesting to me how various boards of the same species can look so different when finished. That is some really tight grained cherry. Sweet.

Good job,
Steve
