I followed Larry’s tutorial and it turned out as a nice exercise for me. I used portables and handtools. The pattern was a combination of Larrys 30 degrees and straight brickwork however I added a square by making a 90 degree bevels on the midsection.
As far as the wood is concern… they are all scraps from 2×3 used partition frames. I assume: yellow-teak, paduak for the orange and brown Philippine mahogany. The black squares are iron wood.
This is a good experience specially when doing manual flattening of the board. It took me 2 hours of sanding using different portable sander and grinder. So much dust. Luckily the wood are heavy and dense …. dust will not fly high
I would like to thank Larry (Degoose) for inspiring me to make this cutting board. I have a lot of scraps (photo 5) and I think it would suit this kind of project.
