Beautiful form and beautiful wood. It would be a shame to actually cut on this surface, maybe the back side?

it does look too nice to use. it is a very beautiful piece indeed. I love the use of purple heart. just have to keep it out of the sun. though you probably already know that.
it gives me an idea to build another one large enough for a turkey then an under the counter holder to store it in.

Very nice. Are there pros and cons to end vs long grain cutting boards? It seems to me that long grain would be more stable?

Nice job. Will it ever see a knife? Every nice board I’ve made ends up a serving tray or just sitting on a shelf.
