    A couple cutting boards to get sucked into.

    So I'm not back to full capacity yet but I've made time to make a few cutting boards recently. Please enjoy.

    Very interesting geometry there. Thanks for sharing.

    Well done ! I've admired that stuff since I first saw it in the '60s. I don't think I could do something of that type without
    masking off all but one small area. How do YOU make it "hold still" ?

    I use masking tape to hold everything while I carefully apply pressure with the clamps.

    Bill thanks. But that was an allusion to optical illusion making for delusion and causing confusion. Meaning all the pieces wiggling ,and flashing
    and refusing to hold still.

    You should see what it takes to keep everything lined up, that will bang your eyeballs into each other.

    Truly amazing, thx for sharing?
    I am curious, how do u keep cutting boards from warping...
    I try to keep em flat, but they rarely stay flat, then I start planing them to get em flat again.
    for most end grain boards, not a huge deal, but for YOURS, that would be a huge deal trying to re flatten. Do u notice the boards moving in time?
    I used to use cutting board oil with special mixture of oil n wax
    No I moved to mineral oil which people seem to have great success with.
    at least as per the amazon reviews.

    Thanks, these actually are endgrain and extremely stable. Takes a ton of wood to make them.
