Latest finished cutting board. A coworker paid me for this one. She wanted it to be 18×12 but this came out to be about almost 14×20. I was fairly happy with the results. It is definitely one of my flattest ones to date.

Thanks for looking.

I would also be interested in your method. I’ve done tumbling blocks before, as a veneer and it’s a pain in the butt. Very nice by the way.

My wife loves your cutting board. She quilts and showed me on the wall a 3D pattern that quilters use. She stated that if I cut thin slabs of wood like her quilt pattern it would probably achieve the same look. I think about lining up pieces on a backer board and if it would survive a trip through my planer. I am sure there must be an easier way. GREAT job woodensoldier

That looks really great. The only downside is that someone might use it for a cutting board and get knife marks all over it.

Thanks for the comments!

As much as I’d like to take credit for the design of this one, almost every cutting board I’ve done I’ve learned from the masters, Spalm and Degoose.
Degoose made a great tutorial for this one if anybody is interested in trying it out.

Goodluck, they’re still a lot of work. Make sure you glue them up on an absolutely flat surface (I use an big pane of glass).

Awesome job! You might consider hanging that one on the wall instead
