Well, this took about 3 weeks of on and off work. Gluing mostly.
I had seen some cutting boards that kind of looked like a maze so I figured why not make a maze. It turns out to be a real pain. It’s almost impossible to get all the pieces the exact size and then glued up the exactly the same way every time.
I ended up finishing it but it turned out bad in my eyes. The only way I can see to do this and get everything to line up perfectly, is to glue one piece at a time making sure it’s right. I glued up an entire row at a time and the accumulation of small differences really added up. It’s just too big also.
It is an actual maze. You start at one DOT in one corner and go to the other DOT on the opposite corner.
Material it hard maple and peruvian walnut.
Anyway I hope that you enjoy it.
