I took a bandsaw class at my local Woodcraft and we made a cutting board, a bread board and the deer. It was a nice way to spend a Sunday!

Great looking cutting board.
You could use the same technique to make a drunken board

Very nice board. To do end grain all you have to do is cut it again, flip it 90 degrees and re-glue. Pattern you cut first has to be something that will look good when you flip.

Is this the board you wnat or this?

Thanks guys! I am so new at this! I am having a great time.
So Phil….this is where I realize how female brained I am….have a hard time fliping objects in my head, but I am getting it! So in this last pic of yours, the board looked the same then you cut stips and flipped them?

What I like about this board project is that the “scraps” made a great bread board. Two gifts out of 3 pieces of wood. The recipients LOVED them!

in last board I used two different boards to start. walnut all the way for ends. Then second board WWCCCWW. Cut them 1.25” and flip. Then put them together for last glue up.

It is hard to flip in my mind too. Every time I have to do a double think or triple to get it. But that is why I like making these. It is not just cut and glue. Check out my blog on falling blocks it you want complicated.

Good job! I can’t ever get my bandsaw cuts to match up that well for gluing.

Hi Mike,
I am not sure about the wood, and I have already given it away! I know the dark is black walnut, the others I think are cherry and ??. Maybe someone can help??
It is so encouraging to read the comments!!! THANKS!
