Hello LJ’s, over the weekend I did a little cleaning of the shop and found plenty of nice cut off to put to good uses in making this diamond design cutting board. Posted recently by LJ Scott Oldre’s which caught my eye and so the heist was set in motion. My diamond shape didn’t come out the way Scott’s board had them so I’ll have to try once again, but over all not a bad production of a cool design. Thank to all for view and especially Scotty the Diamond Cutter…Blackcherry

I need to go looking through my cut offs.

Am I seeing things or is the board made up of lots of little squares..and diamonds.
It doesn’t look like a normal end grain constructed board?
I will definitely have to go check out the Post by LJ Scott Oldre

This is beautiful Wilson. Your choice of woods is great in terms of color and the figure. Like HorizontalMike said, it appears to be moving or waving.

Nicely done. Looks every bit as nice as the ones I did, and I’m sure you’ll agree, not too difficult, just a little extra steps of cutting the angle off one corner and slapping some contrasting wood back on, then re-squaring before the normal first glueup. I’d been thinking about that one for a long time, but was always too much in a hurry to give it a shot. Glad I did, and glad you did. Heist away, those diamonds will last forever and they really are a girls best friend…in the kitchen.

I have to ask, is the piece of curly maple on we can see on the one edge part of the design? I don’t see it on picture #2, so was just wondering.

Again, very beautiful board, keep it up.
