Fantastic job! Great detail work. Love the look of the diamond pattern. I am sure everyone will love to recieve one of these.

Keep it up.

Wow, this is a great eye for detail. I’m curious too, what kinds of wood did you use?

This is truly beautiful.
I love the color choices.
Did you make a jig for cutting these pieces ?
Your post is such a gift to me,
Knowing someone else enjoyed and used the blogs.

Thank you !! and Awesome !!

The woods I used,from center out were,yellowheart,sapele,wenge.purpleheart,mohogany.lacewood and hackberry on a walnut background.Lisa I made two jigs(not as fancy as yours) one for each part.Did use your toggle clamp hold down idea.Thanks for the tip,kept all the parts in my time zone.Thanks everyone for the feedbacks,was a fun project.Surface sander is next project,to much hand sanding on the cutting boards.
Lots of help from LJ’s on that suject too.Later Mike

I like the combination of diamonds and squares! Nicely done! I came to the same conclusion after building mine – time for a thickness sander…

Nice work Mike and fantastic choice of timbers.
