Here is a copy of the cutting board The Wood Whisperer made in one of the episodes, thank you to marc for the episode and also answering my questions pertaining to making the board. It is Maple and Purple Heart. They didnt have any 8/4 purple heart so i glued two 4/4 peices together. You cant really tell if you look quick.

Added my third board, made of walnut, purple heart and hard maple. bad picture and the background takes away from it but its nicer than the first one.

Definitely on my ‘to-do’ list also. I really love the purpleheart, it’s one of my all time favorites for bowls, pens and flutes. Great looking board Josh!

Beautiful piece! You almost ended up with a cutting board you could play chess on. :-)

It truly is a nice item.
At the Wood Show in Jan where our guild has a display I was surprised that the end grain cutting boards took first place in the “other” category, Plus they got a number of “best of show” votes.
Yours is nicer IMHO because of the way the eye follows the curves, not just linear.

-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.

That really came out great Josh! Nice work. And I really like your placement of the routed hand holds. Can I steal that idea for my next one? :)

Good job, Josh. I made some end grain cutting boards for my friends last holiday season. Your cutting boards turned out great. I know what it takes to make that style of cutting board. You did a great job – super project.

Bill – I am up to the challenge of cutting boards. LOL

Beautiful job Josh,
When I first looked at the image, it kind of reminded me of an optical illusion. The routed ends cause the lines to look bent. Cool !
