I have always been intrigued by the 3-D cutting boards that have been shown on Lumberjocks. So, after perhaps 300 boards (of simpler designs) having been made, I jumped into the deep end of the pool with this one.

One of the photos shows the board BEFORE the mineral oil was applied. What a dramatic difference!! This is made from Maple, Walnut and Cherry.

I got the design from an MT video, but, being 3-dimensionally challenged, it took me a long time to figure out how this could be made. I found that there is a lot of “kindling” left over with this one, but the result is well worth it. AND I learned that my planer is not producing completely flat boards – (Gotta fix that before I do another of these).

Regards

jumping into the deep end paid off – great looking board

The boards illusion looks so real. It appears Something could fall into it.
Like Mel said I would be afraid to cut on it.

I am truly thankful for the comments that have been made about this piece. Working alone, as many of us do, it is often easy to think that the pieces we create are really not that good because they are not “perfect” (We KNOW where the errors are!! Dammit!!).

I am now thinking longer term, to the weddings of the 8 (so far) grandchildren. Because these pieces “keep” rather well, I can create a number of them and not have them go bad, or out of style.

Okay, back to the dustbin now.

Cheers
