The strips were 3/4 x 1 x 12-18 in length
I used a table saw, sanded them then glued.
This made a plank that was striped.
Then cut crosswise, sanded the glued to get the checkered patterned.

I knew a rather "forward thinking" guy who would routinely rip his otherwise useless hardwood off-cuts into standard sized square sections. These would accumulate until he had enough for an end-grain butcher block. The method he used was similar to here. For chopping (as opposed to cutting) the advantage of an end-grain surface is that splits don't develop with usage. I had an even more efficient way - I'd go visit him and relieve him of an armful of his pre-cut hardwood off-cuts. :evilgrin:
