Cutting Board Help

I saw this photo on Pinterest and I’m trying to figure out the best way to make this. It looks quite difficult because of the different size pieces. Can anyone offer help in how this would go together?

Maybe I am missing something here, but it looks virtually the same construction as a cutting board where each piece is a square.



The pieces that are not squares are rectangles that are 3 squares long. Instead of thinking of those pieces as rectangles, think of them as 3 squares already glued together.

I'm not sure how he did it but it's probably not that difficult when you get a system and rhythm going. If you do one make sure your joints are better than this -

Ken - can you go back to where you found the photo ?
maybe you can back track it and hopefully find a "project page"
of the person that made it. (or one similar) I have seen this
basket weave design before. check out "LumberJocks" https://www.lumberjocks.com
it is indeed a very nice piece !! thanks for sharing.

These are large pieces of cross-grain wood. If this is glued up solid, as I think it is, then the wood will move and gaps will appear.

John,

I don’t include a link because it was just a photo on Pinterest. I looked but couldn’t find a project link. Thanks

Good point. Hadn’t thought of that.

That confirms my suspicion that this ends up in one big glue up of a couple dozen pieces in the end. There’s no repeating pattern that you can duplicate and glue up in advance to make the final assembly easier. Thanks for the link.

George,

I’m simply saying that there is no stackable repeating pattern that can be pre-glued to make the final glue up easier. The final assembly is gluing all individual pieces together at the Sam time.

I didn’t look that close but you’re right. That’s not the best fit.

Think of the rectangular pieces as the "preglued" pieces that make the job easier. Don't overthink the project.

I don't see any way to break that down other than all of the individual pieces.

The one thing I notice is that they didn't keep parts from the same board consistent on the "weave". Would have had much more impact if the grain flowed as the same board, IMO.

I do a lot of complex glue ups, they are fun.

You can do a lot with a simple straight glue up.

Shoot summ, at what point do you go cross-eyed and the shop starts to spin, looks like fun other than that.

On the original post, looks like all the parts are cut to the length of one square and the length of 3 squares with a whole lot of butt joints.

From what I see about basket weave there is no real easy way or short cuts, it is a matter of precision work.
