I put these together for Christmas presents, I like contrasting woods I hope the relatives do also.
The woods are cherry,walnut, maple, hickory, teak (thought it was mahogany until I cut it, to late) and oak. I had already started the boards when I read a comment from someone about oak being porous, I’ll give that one to my brother in law. I going to ask for more clamps for Christmas.

Thanks Ron

Boards turned out great. Did you just pin the bread board edges? Never can have enough clamps!!!

The pinned ends look great on these pretty boards

Very nice pieces of cutting boards. Like Dusty, I like the pinned breadboard end.

These are really nice. Bread board ends on bread boards… what an idea!

As all of Ron’s projects have been this one too is a lovely treat. It is prominently displayed on my counter but I have been afraid to actually use it because I don’t want to have cut marks in it like my cheaper quality store bought bread boards. Kitty
