I first came across the idea of making an Escher cutting board while looking through all of BritBoxmakers well thought our and explained blogs. You can read about it here.
I have taken several pictures of the process I used to make my boards, with the idea that I would create a blog describing this project. I will make an attempt at it if I get a chance to sit down and work on it.
The board is made from cherry triangular centers with the connecting boxes made from purple heart, and the connecting struts made of maple.
I want to than BritBoxmaker for the inspiration, so Thank you.
This build really has tested my patience and challenged my creativity.
The challenge of getting tight joints and filling the inevitable gaps that resulted from pieces slipping around during clamping is evident in the boards. I don’t think I will be trying this again. I think I can put them to use on someones granite counter top as a pot holder, but due to the gaps in them I wouldn’t recommend using them as cutting boards.
Edited to add size. There are two boards(in case it wasn’t obvious) and each one measures about 10”x 16” x 1”.
I made a blog of the build for the top, click here
