I am a bit slow on posting these. I found myself at the beginning of November trying to think what this year’s woodworking gift was going to be. The last few years I have made things for my parents to prove to them that the tools do occasionally get used and to force me to produce something on a deadline. Two years ago it was a Arts & Crafts side table which they loved. Last year was a Arts & Crafts floor lamp that I am not sure they do, so I was thinking something more restrained. Also, I need to make two. My wife wasn’t thrilled that my parents had more of my paltry furniture output than she did. So what to make…

Well, I settled on cutting boards on the Wood Whisperer’s pattern. First of all, it should be quick, secondly it would be a good test of my shiny new Grizzly table saw. And so it was pretty easy. The saw works like a champ. The boards are made with hard maple and Black Walnut. The pictures aren’t great, but it’s what I can get out of my current camera.

It’s like one of those prints that messes with your eyes. Cool pattern, good contrast.

You should tell people they’re chess boards. See what kind of reaction you get.

Nice work.
