Default Tumbling Blocks

The Christmas gifts are finished. But I needed a project to keep me out from underfoot while the preparations continue in the house. I've been wanting to make a 3-D Tumbling Block Cutting Board since I saw the first one on the internet. I had some scraps left, and I had some time to kill. I'm sort of proud of the way it turned out.

Merry Christmas Y'all!

You should be proud of the way it turned out. Very nice.

Andy,

That's a great looking Board. The optical illusion is super.

Andy,

I have always loved the Tumbling Blocks Pattern and it looks like you have mastered the use of it in this cutting board.

Did you use the individual block method to build it or was this cut from a glue up of boards?

Plus 1 for design and execution.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I built this one by using the techniques techniques in this video.


I can't imagine trying to corral all those tiny blocks and get the joints tight.
