Drawn in sketchup this a mockup of my proposed entry, design is based on my previous cutting board.

Mockup is 11 inches square. Strips are 1/8 inch. small squares are 1 inch. longest parts are 3.5 inches
Invision the material as Wenge and Yellowheart.

Not sure how many I will make or how I will market them, but this is a start.

thought I’d offer up this sketchup model to whoever wants it.

I’ve found it is easy to change the material combinations … good website get jpegs for wood textures.
This guy has photos of about every kind of wood possible.

Dan, this is a Great Design, reminds me of a woven strapped chair seat. Totally Rad, I really love the contrasting wood and the various sizes define the piece. My Son has been looking for a different type of chess board. Well we’re getting closer. Keep them projects coming.

Dan, great board! I love the final product. I’ve got a wedding gift to make and this looks like a winner. Is there some place to download the actual Sketchup files?
