    I was thinking that I owe the wife a cutting board – her grandfather used to make them for her but he hasn’t been woodworking in a few years. Have any of you guys made any? I was looking for something that would be kind of ‘modern’ I guess, but still uses some nice hardwood – endgrain for sure. I came across this one pattern called the ‘Chaos Cutting Board’ and it looked pretty nice.

    Matt, that board looks really sweet. I don’t know how they got that all to fit together? Is there a secret pattern that I cannot see?

    Ha I forgot to include that – here’s a link to the chaotic pattern video that breaks down how it’s done:

    Wow, I just watched that entire video. Its pretty crazy how much work goes into a cutting board like that. It also helps to have an incredible miter sled on your table saw.

    I made a cutting board in woodshop about 45 years ago. It’s probably not modern enough.

    That board looks crazy. It also looks like it could be distracting if you were using it as a cutting board.

    That is insane. I don’t know if I could do that. Sounds like a good project though. Can’t wait to see what you do.

    It is kind of crazy for sure, but I think it would be fun to do. I think I’m crazy enough to try it. I’ll certainly let you know how it all turns out.

    Awesome cutting board! Don’t know that the wife would enjoy the “chaos” though. They certainly can be fun to build and how fancy you get is up to you. Show us pics when you get done Matt.

    That is awesome but I think I’ll stick to corian and my router.
    I like it when she says” You already finished it, Wow!”

    I have never made a cutting board but I did restore this butcher block. I turned all new legs and the buttons to cover thebolts

    I love a solid piece of furniture like that.

    I need to pick up a planer for this project to get it going, but should be able to do that pretty soon.

    Matt, I would suggest a wide format drum sander. It will work well on the flat edges and much better than a planer on the end grain for the final smoothing.
