This was my first attempt at making a cutting board and I’m thrilled with the results. It’s approximately 23” x 15.5’ x 1.5” and built with black walnut and cherry. I had to rely on my father’s workshop and a local cabinet maker (his industrial belt sander saved me days of using a hand held). You can see the unevenness of my end cuts. The trickiest part was getting the second cut (end grain showing) to lay flat when clamped. I probably lost .25” in depth because of this. I finished it with Howard Butcher Block Conditioner.
The Wood Whisperer has a two part video that gave me a lot of guidance, here’s part one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5B8oAJs3sik
