Cafe Wall Illusion Board – 5 x 7




End grain charcuterie or small cutting board from Vermont maple, black walnut, and black cherry.
7 1/2″ x 4 7/8″ x 3/4″ thick.
Food grade oil and beeswax finish (a small supply is included for upkeep).

Though some complex, and not yet fully understood, processing in the visual system creates the illusion of lines sloping in alternate directions, the rows of tiles have all been carefully crafted to be of uniform width (the illusion disappears when viewed from very close up). For more information on the effect, dubbed the cafe wall illusion, see this post.
