Here are my latest cutting boards. Pics 1,2,3,&4 are what I call a double bookmatched board. Final dimensions are 14”x20”x2”. It was made by assembling a bookmatched board with dimension of 7”x20”x4” then cutting it in half to do the second bookmaching. I have been playing around with this technique and think it has some good possiblilities although I think the previous board I posted using similar techniques turned out better.
Pics 5&6 is yet another chevron pattern board final dimensions are 14×18x2. People love to buy the chevron boards even though it is one of the easier patters I make especially compared to a bookmatched endgrain board.
Questions and comments welcome.

My, that is a thick chevron board. Cool.

I also don’t remember seeing one with the tips still attached.
I agree that the chevron is a real crowd pleaser. You done good.

Thanks Steve. I have found that some love the chevron with the jagged edge while for some its a no go but if they like it I leave it. With this board each half of the chevron is 2” wide had I cut the tips off the board would have measured less than 14” in length instead of 18” with the tips still on.
