Custom End Grain Cutting Board. 26” x 14” x 1” book matched walnut with maple diamond inserts. Finished with Howard’s Cutting Board finish (basically mineral oil with bee’s wax and some dryers). The size was obviously dictated by the customer, but I personally, I will never make another cutting board this size with this thickness. Minimum thickness is now 1-1/4” for anything greater than 10” x 10”.
