Cherry and maple “drunken” cutting board. Followed the blog by poroskywood for instruction, but I just eliminated the strips between each piece. I really like the look and wanted to try one for myself. Happy the way my first one came out, although I’d like to learn how to get it all aligned (if possible). You end up making two boards, but since I used some smaller scraps, I just bookmatched the two boards together to make one.

I think all of us would be happy with that for one of our firsts!

Excellent cutting board. I am surprised someone has not made a drunken chess board.

Very nice. Very creative. I don’t know if it is just the suggestion, but when I look at it, I start to feel dizzy. Is it just me? Really.

Nice! XD The strips are a pain in the foot anyway. Maybe a thin contrasting strip of walnut between the bookmatch would be sweet.

I realize this is an old post, but is there anyone that has made either the drunken or the alice in wonderland boards that could comment on the end grain being glued up. I’m wondering how they last, I have always heard end grain doesn’t glue up well. Comments anyone?
