Sweet. At first I thought, `poor guy, look what happened to his chessboard.’ JKThat’s a design to be borrowed. ;-P

Thanks for all your comments. as for those who wish to borrow the design, its really simple. glue together strips of the same thickness and in the end glue one half width. as for the size, this one is quite small – 11”x9”. word of caution – sanding walnut endgrain is really tedious work.

just finished my first cutting board from scrap. Not even as close to as nice as yours. Yours shows great attention to detail, Mine was just lots of cutting & I got bored . . .

the cutting is the easy part on this one, although (like any cutting board) it requires very precise cutting. the sanding, on the other hand, is the really exciting part! 80, 100, 120, 150, 180, 240, 320, 400, 600 grit

I admit it, I am a hack, a butcher a bodger and a cad. I went 80, 150, 220, oil, knife, dinner. I wasn’t happy with the layout, so I called it a prototype.
Yours has a 3D luminescence to it, assisted by the exacting layout.
I can’t stop staring at it . . .

I can’t help to note that you said warm tung oil. Does that help it to absorb into the wood? And is tong oil exceptable to use on a cutting board? Nice project.
