Cutting Boards are something new for me, been doing them about two months now. I always thought they were pretty neat, but had no desire to build them until I got accepted as a vendor at the local farmers market. They have been super popular, but I like to try to make them all a bit different from each other.
Here is my attempt at the cafe wall illusion. I read a lot about how to pull this off, and while I think the next one I make willl be better, I’m fairly happy with it.
For the blocks I used walnut and hard maple, and for the ‘mortar’ I used some walnut, thinking that by using the edge for it, it would be lighter than the end grain blocks.
I have a hard time seeing it myself unless I’m about ten feet away from the board, but others have told me they see it easily.
It wasn’t too difficult, just took time to do all the glue ups.
If you have any questions please ask!
