I have been following larry’s (degoose) cutting board101 blog and it inspired my to make some boards
first is hickory/yellowheart/and purpleheart. 2nd is zebra wood/purpleheart/hickory/cherry the 2 sets of dimonds is a very hard glue up. next is just a different version if a square cut board it is yellowheart/walnut/purpleheart/bloodwood/padauk then i made 2 cheese boards 1st is 30 deg. cuts with canary wood/padauk 2nd board i had a little slipage as you can see the lines dont match as i wanted them to it was to look like the freway i also made a cutter to go with this one if you have not seen the blog here is a link

Great boards and once Degoose ( Larry ) who I chat with often and has taught me many things see this post, he will love them. The 1st boards middle wood grain colors is so cool, how it grows from left to right.

There all great, I really need to try yellow heart in my next set of boards.

Well done.

Eddy, that first board is a work of art…natures beauty at its finest and you have brought it to life.

Nicely done!
