I made this board to donate to my son’s school charity auction. It is 19”x11”x1-3/8” and made from maple, cherry and walnut. It’s the largest board of this pattern I have made to date and I don’t think I want to get much bigger. Clamping the hexagonal shapes for such a large size is a challenge.
Thanks for looking.

The board looks wonderful. You did a great job on it. Did you glue the diamonds individually or make up the blocks first with the three species and then glue up? I’m sure it will bring in a good price. People are always fascinated by these illusion cutting boards.

That is a Work of Art, I would not be able to use it as a Cutting Board,
I’d hang it on a wall as a display.

Cheers Tony.
