I’m making an end grain cutting board for my brother for Xmas and it’s going to have an 8 bit Super Mario on it composed of 4 woods with 3/4” squares. Some of you may have seen an 8 bit Mario board online. The reason I’m going with 3/4” squares is Mario is about 16 squares tall and 3/4” is the only way I could fit him on a usable size board.
My big question is how do I go about building this one. I understand how most end grain boards are build, but that same method won’t work with the 4 woods and a random pattern. The only way I can think of doing this is to lay them individually which is time consuming and increases the chance of an error.
I can not think of a better way of approaching this one. Any insight would be greatly appreciated since I’ll be starting soon. I’m just waiting on the blood wood for the red bits.
