Wow, you are a legend!!

How did you do the “groove” on top? and that last board looks tricky, how did you make that split pattern piece?
A blog would be good on this.

Thanks for sharing, Those boards will be cherished!!

I love those optical illusion boards… Even if they do give me vertigo..

Thanks for all of the kind comments.
In answer to cannondale’s questions. The groove is made with a router and a 1/2” core box bit. I double tape a rectangular guide in the center of the board that has the same corner circumferences as the cutting board and then guide the router around it.
As far as the pattern goes, all of the boards are the same pattern. The only differences are the sizes of the squares.
