It's beautifully executed, but I have a personal negative reaction to the chevron motif. I don't know why but I've always had this reaction, especially to that type of design on Navajo blankets.



Nope, nope, nope...

That round Chevron cutting board is well done. My one comment that I see right away is a lot of waste. The boards are ripped, glued together straight ,then cut on an angle, creating a lot of waste going from straight and square to the angle. then glued together and cut round, again more waste. Not in a negative sense, just that you have to figure a lot of extra material to make a board that design. It came out quite nice in the end.

That kind of design can induce seizures, and even mildly closed head injury patients often get nauseaus when they see something like this. Went to a meeting for brain injured folks and had to get rid of my patterned necktie because it was really messing with patients' minds.

I agree with Herb. A lot of waste. I make oval cheese boards and try to minimize waste by gluing varying length boards together so that I can just inscribe an oval inside. Still more waste than a rectangular board. She did do a nice job on the board though although, like others, I'm not a fan of the pattern.
