I haven’t posted a cutting board in a while (despite making lots). I’ve always liked white oak end grain, and although oak of any type makes for horrible long grain boards, I’ve found that the end grain of white oak is very non-absorbent due to the tyloses in the pores.
I think white oak’s end grain is just beautiful, so I decided to make a couple of end grain boards out of one species, a first for me. White oak varies so much in color from board to board, it looks like multiple species. I just love how they came out.
The shallow handles on the underside were routed in a single pass on the router table with a large straight bit.
Finish is 3-4 coats of thinned salad bowl finish.
