I have been making cutting boards for about two years now and had a guy ask if I could make one for his kitchen island, he wanted something large enough to process deer on, and asked if I could make it look Indian…so I attempted the largest one I have done yet, and used chevrons and actually think it turned out alright!

I would say that you were quite successful and that “alright” is an understatement!!!

WAY better than “alright”. That is major classy.

Great design and execution !!
How thick is it ? What woods did you use ? What type of finish is on it ? Does it attach to the island ?

Thank you again everybody! The board ended up being about an inch and a quarter thick, was made from hard maple, walnut, cherry and beech and finished out with mineral oil and then mineral oil with beeswax! He already had a smaller board that was hexagonal that attached to the island and would come off and just wanted this one to lay on top when he removed that one…turned out really, really nice!
