This is my first attempt at an end grain cutting board. It is black walnut and hard maple. I did a random sort of pattern. Its not perfect but I’m more of the cabinet building type.

Extraordinary cutting board! Great attention to details.

Very nice. How did you go about getting that pattern? My brain is kinda programmed to the every other board flip look, but I can’t find how you did it.

I did like you said and flipped every other board. cut it apart 3 times on an angle rotating the board 90 after each glue up. On the last glue up I kinda mixed them all up till I liked the look. I probably could not duplicate again i’m sure.

The random placement makes it quite interesting. It seems very daring for a cabinet maker at heart! Nice job!
