This was my second attempt at an end grain cutting board. I used four types of wood. Maple, cherry, purpleheart and padauk. I found out that purpleheart and padauk are subject to chip out through a planer. I made two different blanks to achieve this look. The finish is about 8 to 10 coats of salad bowl finish wiped on. I have seen other cutting boards members have posted and they look great! This one doesn’t come close to the others, but the customer was happy.

Alternating the two blanks has given the board a wavy feel.. well done.. different to all the others.. and that is what it is all about.,.

Wonderful contrast of woods.

May I suggest you use mineral oil to finish any future cutting boards? Mineral oil, unlike olive oil, salad oil or any other veggie or animal oil, won’t ever turn rancid and it is reasonably priced.

-- JoeR Nothing that I could make will ever be perfect but I'll use it anyway.
