When I made my maple cutting board I made sure to use a couple different pieces of maple. Once I have all the long strips cut I shuffle them up. These seems to help bring out the random pattern a little better. Also sometimes to check I’ll wet a rag with mineral spirits and wipe it across the end grain of the long strips, it helps to give you a bit of an idea of how it may finish. And the mineral spirits evaporate and don’t affect the final finishing of the board. Good luck!

Kram79, thanks for the great tip. My first try at a nice random board was or is a disaster…...i cut individual pieces that of course was a nightmare to try and glue in a even strip. I have been working on it and just using a block plane to try and make them fit. Slowly but surely I will finish it but there will be plenty of glue gaps on it.
I have a bunch of 8/4 hard maple ready for my next one. I think I will try your version.
