Here are four end-grain cutting boards I finished today, out of maple, cherry, and walnut. The first picture shows the blank after the glue-up and before cutting them on the bandsaw (there was one round of glue-up after that to glue half-boards). The rest are the finished boards after applying mineral oil. Each is about 18”x11”x1.5”

Those really make my eyes bug out, but they really look nice.

Great Job !!!! I want to make some for Christmas this year but so far had not had the time to find any wood to get started. But hopefully I will find the time to talk to some of the local saw mills to track some maple or cherry down. Good looking design. Hope my 1st board just will be half as pretty as yours.. Thanks for the post of your work!

Nice looking cutting board. I was looking to put such detail on a bed I’m making. Great work. Just a question – is this folk inspired?

Proleter,
thanks. Design is by my wife. Don’t know what it is called or inspired by.

Have your say...
