Diamond pattern End Grain cutting board. Walnut and maple. Made for neighbors. 17”x11.5” Hand turned Walnut feet. Put a picture in of how I get the pattern. Just take a mirror image mitered slice out of the sides of 2 slats that will be glue together, glue some other wood into the removed area, then when dry, re-run it through the tablesaw to get them back to square. A little extra work, but we’ll worth the time. Pictures from phone, so not as shiny as they really are with simple mineral oil finish.

I’m going to post the feet turning on another project, but basically, when I’ve got the board done, I use a forstner bit to drill 3/4 holes on the bottom side and then turn the feet with the matching 3/4 tennon. I can’t imagine doing a cutting board without feet anymore and the neighbors always ask where are the feet when I show them just the board, so it’s no pretty much expected that they’ll have unique feet on each one of them.

I have a lots of ideas for more, and think I’m going to attempt a 3 wood star pattern next. The one other thing I notice that’s different about my boards is that I glue everything up in a line, rather than try to offset one strip with another. None have broke and it gives me more options with creating continuous patterns this way.

Hope you enjoy and give it a shot.

Great boards. You are sure talented. The comment about people asking we’re the feet are is too true. I get that with each board as well. Think I will add feet now too. Thanks for posting.

Nice work Scott

Very Impressive work, set off exceptionally well by the turned feet
All my boards have feet of some description either build in or added on, I guess it an expect, but none as fancy as your project.
Good detailed explanations attached also it makes for well worth reading.

A question what is a rain Bird? photo six.

Rob, that’s my sprinkler timer. Nothing to do with wood at all, except for maybe watering the trees ;)
Thanks for the kind words
