Quilt pattern cutting board

This CB is made from Bolivian rosewood, shedua, sugar maple, black walnut, yellowheart, bubinga. It measures 12×18 x 1 3/8. After observing my sister’s quilt she was making, I decided to try and make a quilt pattern CB. After cutting all the pieces 45 deg I started to glue them together, but was having trouble with a lot of movement. I just purchased a Thin Rip Table Saw Jig By Peachtree Woodworking and figured this would be a good test of the tool. I put the angled pieces thru the table saw blade (.093) 1/2 deep and cut thin splines out of shedua. I then glued two different pieces together with the spline. After planeing each square I used the same CB techique to glue, cut, flip, and glue to create the pattern you see here. The only problem I had was not having enough clamps to glue the pieces all at once. Maybe I will ask Santa for more clamps. Any helpful comments would be appreciated.
Thanks Don

Wow Don, very nice.
I really like it. I bet it will get a lot of “how did he do that?”.

Excellent work. The splines really make a great design as well as having a function.
