Project Information

I've made many endgrain cutting boards. I've also made this '3d blocks' design in the past, but this is my favourite one so far, it is around 450mm x 350mm x 40mm in size, so nice and heavy and sturdy. I made it as a gift for my fine woman who says 'it's so beautiful, I don't want to use it because then it will get food germs on it'...
so really I've wasted my time and made it for nothing. Should've turned it into a guitar for me instead, at least then i know it will get used as it was intended

My wife has never cut a thing on two of her boards. she puts "stuff" on them to pretty up the kitchen.

I'd have to agree with her that it's too nice to use!
But it is meant to be used, so grab the knife.

Beautiful!!
I am going to attempt one myself. My question is, does the initial parallelogram cut need to be the same thickness as the "sandwich" you start with. Mine is wider than 3/8"-3/4"-3-8". Should it be cut at 3/4" or the total thickness?
I hope I made some sense. I confuse myself a lot.
Thanik you

It is very beautiful, a work of art.
l am trying my first tumbling block cutting board similar to yours. The sandwich parts, Maple, Walnut, Maple and Maple, Cherry, Maple are a total thickness of 1-5/8". How thick should I make my initial 30 degree strips?
I want to make sure it is correct.
Any insight would be helpful
Thank you
