Oh, My! That makes my head hurt trying to figure out the cuts and fitment on that one! LOL.

Great work.

Thanks for the comments. For a1Jim: no blog needed – it’s dead simple. Take three or four different woods, mill them to the same size and then stack them on top of each other with a few pieces of double sided sticky tape in between each layer. Draw whatever curve you like on top and cut the stack on the bandsaw. Take them apart and glue one side to a different wood of the other side. Use LOTS of glue. Plane flat to remove the glue. Restack with tape, draw another curve, cut and repeat as many times as you like. Edge glue the final boards to make the final cutting board.

I made a template of a sine wave to draw regular curves but hand drawn irregular curves turn out some pretty interesting results, too. One obvious comment on bandsawing – don’t try to correct any sawing errors if you go off the curved line. Backing out the blade creates gaps.

Hope this is useful.

Nice change from the more frequently seen designs. And good tips on how to do it. I knew when I saw “sine wave” that the maker had to have a science background. What’s next, hyperbolic sine ?
