(first two pics were taken after the board was in use for some time)
I was recently diagnosed by the members here as suffering from a severe case of CBF (cool board fever).
This is my latest design – a weave pattern end grain cutting board. it is not exactly a butcher block. it is meant to use as a board for placing two ‘Hallas’ on it (braided bread jews eat on Saturday), as part of Saturday meal. so this is why the thickness here is only 20 mm and not 40 mm, like i usually do. so i did it 40 mm thick and rip cut it in the middle with my band saw into 2 boards. one you see here, the other one was ruined when i lost the control on the router, while experimenting curving a channel for liquids. sad but true…
Walnut, Cherry, Maple. rustin’s oil finish.

the gluing is not perfect, but im improving from one board to another…


-- Only by the 4th time I realized how it was suppose to be done in the first place.

Very nice weave cutting board.

I know the feeling when a router grab a the piece and send it across the shop.
That one of the main reasons I don’ use oak much anymore.

Well done Elyasaf
