Here’s a bunch of cutting boards I’ve made. Much of the inspiration has come from similar builds I’ve seen on LJ.

How is the random looking one assembled?

Also, how is the pattern established in the one pictured with it?

Nice collection of boards there, plenty of conversation they could make.

I really like the “L” one, is that all the way through, or just an inlay? Yeah, you could remind us how that one is made.

Thanks for posting.

The answer to both questions…carefully. In all seriousness, the random looking one is just a series of slices in one direction, every other slice flopped from end to end, and then glued up. You then cut slices in an approximate 90 degree direction and do it all over again. If you search LJ for the word “chaotic”, you will see how to do it. I have attached a couple of in progress pictures. These lend themselves a little better to being able to see the cut lines.

The other board with the optical illusion was built based on instructions from mtmwood. Search mtmwood and you’ll find the instructions.

The “L” in burnt in with a laser on a CNC machine. This is a relatively new toy…excuse me, new tool that I got. This was my first finished product using the laser.

Nice looking boards! Can you share what you used for a finish?

Mineral oil until it doesn’t soak in very easily anymore, then a mineral oil/bees wax combo.
