Chopping Block Not .....How Bout Knife Block.....

so I have some large 6"x6" Tamarac wood, this wood is kinda overlooked many times but has very nice grain patterns usually and that is why I like it....

I'm going to make a knife block but not solid, I took a piece and planed it down on all sides then cut out the middle and carefully kept the grains in tact so when all back together it will look like a single piece of wood with center missing......

 

here is some glue up pics for the block and for the top insert with knife holes.....

if you notice the grain is all over the place.....

I decided to match the cutting board for the top plate that will hold the knives...
