A couple years ago I made an end grain cutting board from pine and was very impressed with how the grain pattern looked. I did some research and found that pine was in fact a good wood for cutting boards despite the instant thought (at least in my mind) that it was too soft, absorb too much moisture, and not durable). After a years use the results were great. I made a couple more and gave them away and have had nothing but positive feedback. This weekend I made three more and can’t get over the great patterns that I can make with little effort. The pine grain is so unpredictable that (before the final glue) it is easy to put together the pattern.
