Nicely executed build with this challenging pattern. Kudo’s to ya. I think there might be a few how to tutorials on the site for this style of board.

I must say, we put together a perfectly aligned pattern. The choice of woods are spot on. I too just started using Locust and love the grain, but it tends to splinter.

Hi and thanks for all the comments.
I couldn’t find a how to for this piece. Basically you need to cut your square and rectangular pieces as well as the trim(S). Some patterns use two different color trims. Make sure the wood is thick enough so the end result doesn’t turn out too thin. Dry assemble everything to make sure snug fit. I glued the trims to the long pieces of locus first before cutting them to size. This makes it a lot easier to assemble. Hope that helps. Joesbetterhalf, love your stuff on etsy. Amagineer, this was my first time experience with locust. It appear to be very pliable when in thin strips.

This is awesome…Quality quality work. What makes a piece stand out (to me at least) is one that makes me tilt my head and think “Ok, how the hell did he/she do that? I gotta try this”...and this is def that type of inspiring piece. Awesome job!

Thanks Rob,
My third cutting board. First one was not worth saving, second one went to my daughter. It actually is pretty simple. Main thing I can suggest is to use a long stock of wood to glue the thin strips to and then cut them to size. The rest of them are just square pieces of walnut. There are some more of these posted in LJ that are much prettier than this.
Thanks again
