These cutting boards were fashioned after I watched videos and read articles from Scott Lewis in FineWoodworking June 2013, and Lumberjoe in LumberJocks. Thanks for all the help.
The first two photos are from the larger board 11.5×17 and the last two are from one slight smaller 10×14.
Both boards are made from curley maple, american walnut with inserts of paduka, yellow wood and purple heart of different thickness. Butcher Block finish that is wiped on several times.
Very time consuming project but final out come was worth it. I just hate cutting a project in half on three different cuts and hoping it all fits back together in the same lines.

Really nice! I agree this process does take a while the first few times, but it gets a lot easier. The only part that makes me nervous every time is the bandsawing

Sweet looking boards! Nice clean work! It takes a lot of patience to tackle this design. But as you can see, It’s well worth it in the end!

How in the world did you do those curving lines? I’m guessing you cut it on a band saw and inlaid the strips and then reglued? Did you have to steam the strips to make them pliable?

Burgels…. thanks for looking at my project. I strong advise anyone trying to construct one of these boards to watch the video http.// I watched it several times.
The curved boards were cut on my tablesaw 1/32and 1/16 in thickness, glued on both side to help the sliding board to bend in the frame work..
