I’ve always been enamored of end-grain wooden cutting boards that are made of cubes of wood. They just look really great, and it’s clear that a ton of labor went into their creation. This particular cutting board is especially impressive, using its blocks to form a 3D depth illusion.
The board was created by Andrei Muntian of MTM Wood using a carefully arranged series of wood strips, cut into alternating blocks of maple and walnut wood. He first mapped out the image as a model in SketchUp, then used those drawings to help produce the real thing. Check out the fascinating video below to see how he made it:
