This board was without a doubt the most difficult board that I have made. I made it to give as a wedding present for a couple who got married in mid-February. I was sure glad that I started it early.

It is made from black walnut, cherry, and maple.

The hardest part was getting it glued up so that there were no gaps. Well I didn’t quite succeed in that, so I had to do a lot of sanding and fitting.

Oh well, it was a lot of fun and the couple really liked it.

Normally I can figure out the individual pieces. With this one I am stumped.

Wait, I think I got it – (3) six sided pieces…....each six sided piece is made up of 2 trapazoids.

Wow, good job.
I still love that design. I see it every day on the counter top.

The double glue up is challenging, but rewarding.

Congrats,
Steve

I think it turned out nice. I may have to try one someday. I saw a method (check out CalgaryGeoff’s project) of how to glue together the triangle pieces, using backup boards and wrapping with band clamps for the glueup.

I think you have done an outstanding job. This looks great!! I am half way through one of these, have the fun job of getting final glue up done now. seeing your end product encourages me to keep on to the finish.

Thanks for sharing.

Nice board.
There is a lot of effort that goes into one of these, but the finished product is worth it.
