I made this end grain cutting board to donate to a Water For People event coming up next week in Hot Springs, AR. Walnut, cherry and soft maple (my lumber dealer was out of hard maple). I did have some burning on the cherry but it sanded out without too much trouble. Finish is three applications of mineral oil. Overall dimensions are 12” x 15” x 1-½ thick. I put a chamfer on the bottom edges instead of doing finger holds, like my LJ buddy JL7 did on a board he posted recently.
BTW, it’s not an optical illusion that the pieces look “curvy”. I’m still having some issues with shifting during glue up.
BTW Part Deux, I will probably hit y’all up again for donations for the Water For People event in October . . .
