Have been wanting to try to make a decent end grain cutting board, and thanks to some great advice and guidence that I got here at LJ, was able to complete it. Learned a lot in the process, and am ready to try more (got the bug)!

Woods I used are maple, cherry and oak, simple salad bowl finish, three coats, lightly sanded between, then buffed wiht a clean cloth. Any and all suggestions are welcome!!

There’s only one problem with a cutting board that nice. Whoever you give it to will not want to cut on it. Nice job.

beautiful work. I would however, endeavor to leave a little more meat on the “ends” if possible. That endgrain swells like, well, a matriarch. My girl stored the one that I made under the sink which was how I found out about the slow leak under the sink. After a couple of washings those ends might want to start to separate due to the inevitable checking that occurs in solid wood. Great work, I’d just trim it a bit shorter or make it longer so as not to have the skinny bits of end grain on both ends. Minor detail, big effect.
Nice job.
