Well can I get the secret handshake now! Thanks to all for the tips and tricks you have posted. The first one was the wood wisperers . Made of walnut and hickory. Second ones wee the drunken Alice in wonderland boards. Thanks to porosky. Made from walnut purple heart and cherry strips. Fourth was a quick board for grandmother in law. And the last random quilt patch one was by request of the better half. Made from all kinds. The square in a a square was my sons design that I helped him with (he is 8) was from walnut maple and mahogany. Thanks to my father in law for his patient and use of his tools and heated shop. I have gotten to know my way around a shopsmith. Thanks for looking.

Usually I think it’s kinda cute when I see cutting boards posted, but these are different, Very nice work done on these from what I can see. Your level of attention to detail is terrific.

Nice Boards! My next cutting board adventure will be the “Drunken” style as well. It’s great watching non-woodworkers try and wrap their minds around how it’s made. You just get to smile and nod about how much work goes into them.

Thank you for your comments. It has been fun. And for only starting any kind of formal woodworking in late november. I am a true newbie, but have to bug. My wife and mother in law are trying to plant the turning bug in my ear. I still would like to make a zig zag board but just can’t wrap my head around it. If there is a good tutorial like poroskis out there please point me in that direction. Thanks.

This should help you with the zig zag design.
