I had some scrap pieces of wood and decided to cut, plane, glue; repeat a few more times and this is what came out. It is 11” x 17” x 1-1/2 thk and made from Black Walnut, Sugar Maple, Shedua, Yellowheart, Macawood, Purpleheart, Paduck, Chestnut and Hickory. Thanks for viewing.

Damn that’s good work!

I would LOVE to know how you achieve those perfect 60 degree angles!

If you ever do one of these again, PLEASE consider a blog.

Thanks for sharing this – now all I’m going to think about is how you did it. ;-)

Thanks all for the comments.
Bob; all I did was put together square pieces and rectangular pieces, glued them, cut them from corner to corner for the angles, reversed the pieces and glued again, cut and glued again. The only problem was trying to keep the angled pieces aligned while gluing. I am working on designing a portable gluing table that will keep the pieces from moving and be adjustable to whatever size CB made. I will post when and if I am successful in doing this. I will be going into the hospital on Feb 5th to see if they can repair my heart again, so I will have time to think of this design.

Likewise on the 5th, best of luck. That’s some serious work.

Love the new idea on this cutting board, nice new twist. Might have to “borrow” this idea from you.
