I saw a couple similar boards on Lumberjocks and had to give it a try. I somehow messed up the dimensions of the first glueups so the maple cuts look kind of odd but the board came out pretty well anyways.
Maple and Walnut finished with mineral oil.

Yes, it really did come out rather well. I love the more subtle pattern of the maple block grain.

Thanks everybody. Can’t wait to try some new designs now.

Jorge: McLeanVA has a blog on his page about making the zigzag boards. My board is actually a variation of his design.
