A day of vacation produced a cutting board from scraps in the shop. This is an end grain cutting board with a mix of maple, walnut, and cherry. I tried a new technique of getting curved pieces in the board. I think it would have looked better on an all maple board. The curves are padauk and maple.
I used a rabbit bit to cut the groove from a pattern on the board. Then, cut down the center of the groove with a bandsaw. Then, using a flush trim bit, smoothed it out. Then, using strips of the padauk and maple, I glued it all up.
A few coats of mineral oil, and it’s ready to use!
