I made this Endgrain cutting board in my high school woods class. It is 16 by 12. It is made out of maple and walnut (both hard woods). I made a checker board pattern. First we cut the material, then we cut our strips to the right width, next we arranged and numbered the strips, then we glued the panels, then we cleaned both sides of the panels, then we cross cut the panels into 1 and a fourth strips, next we glued our strips in the alternating pattern, then we removed all remaining dried glue and sanded, then we routed our edges, last we oiled and finished our cutting board. I used mineral oil to finish my project. I really enjoyed doing this project.

Great looking board!

What technique did you use to remove the dried glue?

That can be quite a chore.
