I have found that I need to be more careful & choose wood that has a straighter grain and probably using the same species of wood but from different trees or board. Has anyone done this before that might shed a new light.

Nice work, and looks great…. Always fun to see what cutting board patterns that are out there. Well done.

Straight grain sure makes a difference. I have used Douglas Fir to great effect for this kind of thing

I have never tried that before, but would like to. Did you make one long piece with the angles cut and glued together and then slice it or were those made from individual pieces in each small square?

Cheers, Jim
