Topic tags/keywords: question resource cutting boards end grain designs plans

I see a lot of awesome designs here on LJs for end grain cutting boards. I’ve made myself a nervous wreck trying to figure out the cuts. :( I can do the basic checker board pattern ie. like the Wood Whisperer video instructs for this board.

What I’d like to be able to do is something like these boards:

ARE THERE ANY PLANS AVAILABLE, TRICKS TO THE TRADE OR ANY IDEAS FROM YOU GUYS?

As always,
Thanks

If you search for cutting board projects and blogs on LJs, folks will often include how they made them.

Let me know which of the three you’d like to make. and I’ll draw up the plans and email you a full-size PDF.

I’d go with the first one for starters.

gfadvm: Thanks for the kind words. We’re all in this together.

Steve: I did a quick CAD doodle and came up with the pattern below for 3/4”, 1/2” and 1/4” stock. The beauty of CAD is that I can scale the pattern up or down to fit the stock I have on hand. I just realized that the geometric cutting boards are mostly based on traditional quilting patterns. Maybe a trip to your local fabric store would give you some good ideas. You can always wear a disguise. :)

I think I might have had a good idea … for once. There are a bazillion books out there on quilt patterns. We all need to drop the macho and head for the fabric stores.

Find one and I’ll CAD it. Hit me with your best shot. :)

The pic above shows the glue up I made for an endgrain chevron. It is similar to your last 2 pics. Mine is just a steeper angle.

MTMwood.com has some beautiful designs. A few of them he has detailed plans for a nominal cost. I’ve already built a few of them and some can even make you dizzy!
