Here’s a novel idea.

That’s different.
It’s kind of blurry when you first look at it.
I like it.

I don’t do boards, but I thought this idea was pretty slick.

I hardly believe that this is a “novel” idea! It may be new to you or ather folks making cutting boards but it is not a novel idea!

Sorry if I came across as negative! I did not mean it that way! Finger and scarf joints have been around “forever”!

The novel idea is the use of finger joints in cutting boards. Of course the joint itself has been around for ages. :) It’s a clever application for sure, and creates an interesting visual effect.

I think it would be a great pattern for a table top

I was thinking glue ups for either bowls or band saw boxes. Be an end grain to end grain glue up, but with the right prep and adhesive, it should be OK. Or, 2 layers of end grain separated by a face grain set of alternating colored strips
Just imagine the wild designs?
Then, again, it could be quite ugly.
Interesting experiment for one with some extra time.
