I posted a Czech Knot cutting board 2 years ago now found the time to up the challenge. Woods used padauk, hickory, burr oak, purple heart cherry and walnut. The chevron design is cut at a 30 degree bevel. The lumber has be at least 1 inch thick for the center 30 degree bevel diamond to work anything less center diamond cut at 45 degrees. Stay tuned , will be posting another challenge soon, you’ll going to love it.

Now this glue up for cutting boards is so simple keeping the boards lined up . I used large hand screw Jorgensen clamps to hold wood in place then switched over to the pipe clamps to finish up the job. This really works very well with the beveled chevron design. I use a small block the same thickness as the cutting board as a gage on the table to line up the clamp. Sometimes on larger projects I glue only half of the board at a time if my clamps are not large enough.
Very Important here next.
I lined the inside of the clamps with duct tape to keep them from sticking to the board, but I believe clear packing tape would work better.
