Got a request from a repeat customer. Wanted an end grain cutting board as an anniversary gift for his wife. Made of Maple, Jatoba (Brazilian cherry), Walnut and Purpleheart. Dimensions are 18”x12”x1.5”. Finished with several coats of a mineral oil & bees wax mix. Rounded over corners with a 1/8” round over bit and tons of sanding!! I start with 60 grit and work up to 220. Has anti skid feet also. This is about an 8 hr project and at least 3 of that is sanding.

Nice design and good wood choices., the contrast really makes it pop.
Watch your local craigslist for a drum sander…
I make these all the time and sand them for maybe 30 minutes max…
