I saw this cutting board on Pinterest the other day and decided to give it a try. It is made from Walnut, Cherry, Hard Maple, and Burma Padauk. It was a challenge to get the lines all lined up, I have a few slight errors, but I think it came out good. I have made a rolling pin to go with it, but the finish on it is not done yet. I’ll post it later in the week .

Thanks Guys, It came out darker than the one I saw on Pinterest. The cherry I used came from a pallet of cherry cutoffs from a furniture factory, It all is very dark, I hope it doesn’t get any darker.

Very well done, John. I believe I saw the same picture that inspired your project and I also drew up plans to attempt this pattern of board. Thank you so much for sharing. It looks awesome.

I just signed up for the Lumberjocks so I am just learning the process. I saw the Plaid Cutting Board and it really looks good. Can you tell me where I can get a pattern?

ENGK, I made this from a picture of a similar board that I saw on the Pinerest web site. I made it in three glue ups. The first two were stage one glue ups that made up the first two rows from the end of the board, each glue up handled a different pattern. The first was walnut Cherry and padauk these boards were about 20” long and 1” thick x 2 ” wide except for the padauk it was 1/4” thick x 2” x 20”after glueing these up they were planed back flat and sawed on the table saw into 1 1/2” strips the width of the cutting board. the second glue up was Cherry, Maple, and padauk. These strips were not as thick as the first glue up because you have two rows of theses strip between each of the sections from the first glue up.You also cut thes after planing to 1 1/2” strips. Then just assemble the strips in the right order putting a padauk cross strip between each of the maple strips and glue it up keeping it aligned in the clamps
