I recently purchased a planer and made good use of it with these end grain cutting boards. I got a good deal on some sapele at my local hardwood supplier, so I went with that and maple for contrast.
I started with the plain checkerboard pattern and then tried some new things. My favorite is the wavy looking pattern in the first picture. I finished them with several coats of mineral oil, then a mixture of four parts mineral oil and one part beeswax. You can see the difference in color from the first and second pictures (finished) to the others (unfinished)
Finally, I got some 7/8” screw-on rubber feet and attached them to the bottom. They were very popular Christmas presents, and a project I think I’ll repeat in the future!
