The other day Robert brought me a box of his cut off wood. I used it today to build this board. It took some time to do after I put four different layouts together then I cut them into small boxes and laid it out and glued each box together. It is 8” by 13” no real reason for the pattern just thought I would try it.
Thanks Dennis

That’s a really cool cutting board. I like your pattern more than most of the checkerboard patterns. It looks great!

Dennis, I was just loaning the wood to you. I want it back now!! Nice job. It is probably a good idea to use the long strips to tie it together for stability. Now, name those woods. LOL

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Nice board. I like the design.
I am not educated in this but, just off the cuff, I would say there’s a mid century modern feel to it.
It is cool, thanks for sharing it.

Dennis: I see a nice pattern rescued from the scrap pile. I have sold all my scrap pattern CB’s.
You should not have a problem selling it.
