First cutting board for me.
Thank you all that gave me inspiration.
Pretty simple with a thin rip jig. Seemed to get wider as we went so does not fit the golden mean at 16” X 19”.
Clients (Son and Daughter in law) are happy and that’s all in this universe that matters.
Maple and Walnut.
I purposely put a scratch in it so I know they will use it as a cutting board.
First time I have used the vertical router table in 20 years of it hanging on the wall.
Easier than making a jig.
I wish for a 16” joiner and 24” planer. Should fit in my 11’ X 12’ shop.
My Son is doing the sanding and Daughter in law is making the decisions.
So much fun

I don’t think it is busy at all. I think it is a magnificent demonstration of minimalism, actually. :)

Nice looking board QS. I’ve had one of these on my to-do list for a long time but just seem to forget about it.

“Clients (Son and Daughter in law) are happy and that’s all in this universe that matters.” There is no truer statement than this….

I like the M.C. Escher designs but way out of my league for now.
This cutting board is surface up so not the hardest cutting surface.
I tried edge up but it was too much for my table saw even with a new blade.
All scrapes will get used for segmented tops.
I should say, all scrapes will get used by crazy turner.
Thanks all for the kind comments

That was the first cutting board. The Degoose spiral was supposed to be a cutting board.
First thought was to make a Zbox. What ever the kids want I will try to do.
Sometimes, projects get shelved like the electric guitar because of lack of knowledge.
Looking to make a couple of Malcolm Tibbetts pen blank segmented bowls.
Search “pen blank segmented bowls”

If all else fails then it’s time to turn tops.
Thank you all for the kind comments
