Default Cutting board (my first try)

Well, Theo, here is my first attempt at making a 3D cutting board. I am not sure if it loos # D but Sandra says it is and she likes it, so that is good enough for me.
I wish now that I had taken as you go pictures, but I was well into it when I thought of it.
I was never sure how it would turn out until it did.
I just did the final sanding and oiling yesterday, the tissue I wrapped around it in the box I put it in was damp from oil when she opened it this morning.
I added some little feet I found by accident at Home Depot
Sandra says she is going to cover it with a sheet of stiff plastic when she cuts to not damage it.
I explained that we can always sand and oil it later if it needs.
We,ll see how long the plastic cover idea last.
I wanted to add a groove to catch juices but, maybe I will feel brave enough on the next one for that.

Me? How did I get involved in this? I think it looks lousy as a cutting board. However, all is not lost, I think it would be looking fantastic if you framed it, then hung it on the wall. Stuff like that is not meant to be out of sight. Hang that one on a wall, and make your wife another one.

David, is that an illusion, or is it high and low surface? I can't get my eyes to switch to a flat surface. I have never seen a "bumpy" cutting board, but my mind just can't seem to make it look flat. In any event,great job. What kind of woods did you use?
I agree it should be hung on the wall and just looked at.

Like Herb said; that illusion is crazy effective! The only way I could break the illusion was to look at the straight, flat, back edge in the bottom picture.
If that's a first try, stop now!!

You mean it was suppose to be FLAT?
No body said FLAT !!

I had looked at it so much as I made it, I did not see the illusion of bumps anymore, Sandra had to convince me that it looked wavy.
This was made from the scrap woods I ordered a while back from both Amazon and Ebay. They came in assortments of lengths and types of woods.
The light colors are from two different woods, one of which I know was hard maple, but the other was just off from that color and not marked as to type.
One of the center woods is Walnut and the other I believe is Cherry or some kind of red wood. Very hard.
After finishing the whole thing, my shop was covered in a fine pink dust. When I emptied my dust bin, the top of the bin was pink and at an inch down it turned white,
It took three different glue ups and had to be cut twice plus the final trimming of the ends to square it all up.

I think I am going to look for a planner if I ever decide to make more of these, I wore out two belt sander belts on this.
Any ideas on a decent one with out breaking the bank?
