Not much to say about that. its a tryout I did, mainly to try to get a dazzling affect. its a not an end grain cutting board, but its easy to make an end grain version for that. soon to come. you can see the difference easily on the sides of the board, where the end grain is visible, in which the end grain gets much darker after applying oil. currently I am more into experimenting shapes and patterns, and less into making full scale actual cutting boards.

-- Only by the 4th time I realized how it was suppose to be done in the first place.

Neat. That is a tricky glue-up.
The bevels really add a lot of interest.

But you might need to add some handgrips as that thing maybe hard to lift up with messy fingers.

Looks good… glued end grain to end gran.
Do you think it’s going to maintain the shape
after getting some moisture?
