This is an endgrain cutting board made out of 3 hardwoods. I blogged about the build here.

It is built out of the three parallelograms that are shown in the the forth picture. These were about 15 inch long sticks that were then crosscut into the size shown. I used a sled that had clamps attached to do the ripping, clean up, and crosscutting. By using a few techniques, it was actually a fairly simple build and required no exact measuring (just exact 60 degree angle setting which was helped by a Wixey angle guage).

It was guled with Titebond III while clamped in a frame. It is finished with drug store mineral oil.

I must add – it is amazing the different visual effect you get when you flip the board over…...

Intriguing twist on the normal tumble. Nice job Steve.

That’s really SOMETHING else!

Sure plays tricks with your eyes… what is coming Out? ... or is it In?

That’s another winner!

Really very COOL!

Thank you.

Very impressive.
When I flip back and forth from the second and third picture, it’s like I’m looking at a different board.
Great illusion.
