I have ventured into the cutting board world. I thought that some leaded glass designs of Frank Lloyd Wright would make a nice cutting board pattern. It is modeled roughly after his “sumac” design. This one is done is oak, maple and walnut and finished with Linseed Oil.

I think it made my eyes cross for a second there. Wicked cool use of the grain.

Nicely done on the design aspects of that board. I like the grain orientations you used.

Great job! I’m a big Wright fan and admirer of his glass work. You should do more of these.

Well done.
