The boards 14 1/4” x 14 1/4” x 11/2”. I used Purple Heart, mahogany and ash as the accent strips.
The bottom of the board has rubber non skid feet

I got the idea from degoose from some of the incredible patters he designs/ completes.

If I were to do this project again I would make sure I had all the wood I need ahead of time. I grossly underestimated the amount I would need causing for a lot of headache. I would also create a plan oppose to just looking at a picture and going with it.

Thanks for looking. Mike.

Great work, Larry ( Degoose ) inspired me over 3 yrs ago with his tumbling block board. Its a honor to call him a friend. Along with Marc ( The Woodwhisper ).. , So I blame them for my addiction in making cutting boards. LOL

This board and Pattern is sweet, the colors flow well and fits together nicely! Look fwd tomore….

fantastic work! i recently did an open weave pattern that was a degoose homage. i want to try the “Knot” pretty soon.

The knot looks more complex and exacting than the open weave so I expect a lot of expensive wood scraps and sawdust. Sometimes the scrapped attempts make good pen blanks…so at least I have that going for me.

the color choice is superb…couldn’t be better IMHO.

Honestly I couldn’t put a number on the time it took. I did a few hours here a few hours there. I did it over two weeks so I could work. If I had to guess maybe 25-30 hours ?
