Picked this idea up here at lumberjocks and expanded on it using twin accent stripes[ actually made a coffee table of one of the larger boards but didnt get a pic before it went to its new home]. Thanks again to all the Lumberjocks for the inspiration and ideas.
Light background is Silver Ash and the timber in the main weave is Tasmanian Blackwood [one is NG rosewood] with Purpleheart and Silver Ash accents
I also looked at the dimensions of the background and decided to make the background squares the same width as the main weave less the accent stripes.

Sharp man, real sharp. I’ve been thinking about knocking one of these out soon, how difficult was the glueup?

I will be adding a blog in the next few weeks and will show the whole enchilada. Its not hard but you must be accurate with your cuts and measurements….thats why i only use INCRA rules and mitre express/ mitre guage 2000 … lol plug plug. The glue up is a little tedious i suppose but with the right jigs all things are possible.. wasn’t going to mention my next blog when I haven’t even started the first one but i am always looking to the next project which will always be my best ever!

These are amazing. I bet people have to touch them to make sure they are seeing correctly.

This is a gorgeous board. I really like the look of these basket weave cutting boards and would like to build one myself one day. (If I can ever clear my list of projects already “commissioned” by my wife). I, too, am looking forward to seeing your upcoming blog.
