This was my first cutting board and the first time I had attempted a pattern like this. It is made from maple, walnut, and purpleheart

The project went well – although the pattern can really get to you. Even being careful, I made two mistakes on the pattern. Luckily they were single blocks on the edge, and I was able to cut them out on the band saw and fit another piece in its place. It also taught me patience when it came to sanding, which it took a lot.

That pattern of your board is totally an eye tricker. Great job on the design,execution and details. Job well done.

This design, first board. You should be on congress. You are not intimated by anything.
