My first cutting board attemp in blocks of 45 degree joint of making a square rod. The rhumboid cut is 45 degree by 35 degree cut x and y axis using a miter saw. However, this time cutting a rectangular block at 90 degree and joined them. The result was amazing and everyone who saw it just say frame it rather than making it a cutting board… too good.
To be different, I routed corners and inserted a kamagong (Philippine ebony). It gives a stitch effect though not very visible on darker woods.
The most unique on this board is the diamond in the center with the endgrains highlighted a cross sectional effect. It is very obvious that some pieces are of different color. This is made from offcuts and scrap pieces.
The total number of pieces in it is 24×36 not counting the small ebony stitches-like.
Lesson learned from previous experience… I did not use any finish after sanding… The wood changes its color after applying varnish, tung oil or any other chemicals.. I let it to be as natural as it is.
The size is 10 inches x 15 inches and 5/8” thick…. Woods are not identified as they were only scraps and recycled.
