I have gotten hooked on making end grain cutting boards recently, and wanted to share some of my new creations and hopefully get some feedback and ideas for new challenges.

Those are absolutely awesome. Do you have plans you could share, especially for the last two images.
Thank you.

Thank you, I appreciate your comments. The inpiration and instruction for these boards came from MTM Wood. If you have not seen his website and youtube channel then you should really check it out. He does incredible work, and provides very helpful videos on YouTube. If you are looking for instructions beyond what can be picked up on youtube, then he sells skecthup files and detailed instruction for his designs through his website. These are very reasonable priced at around $10/ea, and each is 30+ pages and extremely well written and documented. Thanks again, and i would love to see your work!

Wow! Very cool looking boards. It looks like it must have taken quite a while.

Very nice designs. Not sure I can offer much in the way of a good challenge for you. I have been considering different places to get some inspiration as well. My thoughts are some designs from geometry class or perhaps some quilting books. I have no doubt you have thought of this though.

I see someone is watching MTM,,,, Well done… He is a great guy and very good at explaining process.

Real nice I will be starting the board in the 4th pic this weekend. I have made the others and they were fun.

Don’t know if I would be able to focus in chopping celery if I was using one of those cutting boards. Might loose the end of a finger admiring the work. Thanks for posting. Wooderful!

Now that is a tremendous amount of glueing and sanding. Very nicely done

Pointer, that is a great idea…..I have my shop inside of my fathers barn, and he has a barn quilt over the front door. I think I will try to make a cutting board to replicate the pattern. I’ll post and let you know how it goes. Thank you for all the kind comments guys. You have made me feelvery welcome for my first post. More to come….........
