Topic tags/keywords: cutting board pattern question

Saw these on Etsy tonight and I’m baffled how it was made. I can’t imagine making this many cuts on a bandsaw and getting it to fit perfectly. And supposedly they’re made from purple heart and yellow heart and only charging $100! Anybody have any clue?

No matter what, my hat goes off to lauren2204 of Etsy.

”How did they make these?”

As is the case most of the time….
I’m clueless!!!

They are amazing though!!!
Thanks for posting these.
Wish I could help…
However, I really wish my skills were good enough to accomplish a build like these!!!

I don’t know how they were made. But the first one, is just a repetition of the same ‘S’ profile.

i see in the second pic up close in the yellow heart
the lines continue

i’m betting cnc machine
cut one edge profile
glue the second to it
wait

move the board
cut second re-glue
wait
etc.

repeat
repeat
repeat

make a bunch at a time
so the waiting isn’t so bad

If you glue two boards on top of each other and run them through the band saw, you make both edges of one mating joint with the same cut so the are guaranteed to match. Actually, you can probably do all the boards at once that will fit in your bandsaw.

If I was going to make one like this, I would start with two 1/4 inch hardboard patterns. The first one I would make with a bandsaw cut and smooth it out nicely. I would make the second from the first with a bandsaw and then finish with a router. I haven’t worked out the details, but I think the whole thing would be bandsaw, pattern routing, glue up. Then repeat as many times as needed. What do you think? Am I on the right track?

I followed the link to the artist’s website. http://www.adesigninwood.com/Home/tabid/314/Default.aspx

Many more examples of his work. Check out the quilted maple on this one.

Well, Woodensoldier is as much an artist as he is a craftsman.

Pretty crazy stuff. Jterry, I wish I could take credit for these works of art, but they’re not mine.

David, a CNC was my thought too. They’re just too exact to have been done with the “tape two pieces together and run through the bandsaw” trick.

having looked over the link
it is really one curve profile
with the boards moved around
for different looks

you are right WS
they are to exact to be done by hand
in the band saw
the parts would break for sure
in the thin areas
or splinter something fierce
