I know more than a few of these get posted on here, but this is my first attempt. I think it turned out pretty well, and I realized that the end grain boards are A LOT more work. :)

Maple and cherry and finished with mineral oil and beeswax. Thanks for looking.

The more the merrier John. It’s a nice project to learn some things about glue ups and they’re fun to make. Yours looks great.

The club is right. Making a cutting board is fun, quick, and satisfying. I doubt this will be my last.

Looks good. Still working on my first, but it has been fun. I found the initial glue up to be a bit tedious. Even with the cauls, things still didn’t line up perfectly. I had to put together a planing jig for my router to get everything flat. Next time i will account for the loss of thickness.

Well done one your first end-grain. Be careful, these things are additive. :-)
