Some Christmas gifts I did. 2 end grain cutting boards (walnut & maple) (walnut, maple, and cherry) and 1 weave (walnut, maple, and cherry). The weave board is actually my second try using the left over pieces from the first try hence its smaller size. The first on cupped pretty bad during glue up, for this second try I clamped it together between 2 pieces of MDF sized just a bit smaller than the actual board. This second method worked quite well. I still have the first sitting on my bench awaiting the drum sander, I don’t think there will be much left to it afterward though.
