This board was a bit tricky. The most important step is to make your miter cuts right at 45 degrees. It’s an end grain board made with maple cherry and walnut. The pattern gives it a 3-D effect. Enjoy

Definitely looks 3-d. I would say that it is too beautiful to actually use as a cutting board.

Very well done! Are all the pieces individual, or are they glued up, cut in rows and reglued? I suspect they are individual pieces, and I also suspect that the final glue-up was an exercise in attentiveness!

‘Tricky’ sounds like an understatement. Fabulous board. You really outdid yourself on this one!

You should consider doing a blog on your process. I’m sure a lot of people would enjoy it.

Good job on that board. It looks really nice.

Spalm made a similar board sometimes ago and he has step by step instructions for those want to build one.
