2 End Grain Cutting Boards…I call them Crazy Quilts because that is what they remind me of…

The one on the left has a cherry border with walnut corners. The one on the right has a walnut border.

The center has cherry, walnut,maple, oak, spalted maple, lyptus, white oak, bloodwood, purpleheart and paduk

Really nice boards!

Question; How many cross-cuts and how many glue-ups? (most I have done on a single board was 4 times)

Well…that is a hard one to answer because I made six boards at one time (these two are the only ones I have left).

The centers are made up of around 8-10 main sub-unit boards that I cross cut and mixed in to the centers. But each sub-unit board can have as many as 4 smaller sub-units that I glue-up and then square to include in the larger sub-unit…

its kind of like a big puzzle and the concept really is very similar to how crazy quilts are made out of scraps of fabric. Sew them all together without rhyme or reason then square them up to assemble into the bigger quilt top…

I really like the ‘borders’ on these. Maybe they’ve been done before but I’ve not seen them. Nice job.
