I completed my first cutting board (gave me something to do while boards glued and coats of paint dried on my entry table project).

It’s made of Black Walnut and Birdseye Maple.

This was initially supposed to be an end grain cutting board, but the pieces were different widths and I glued them initially face to face, so if I would have cross cut pieces and turned them on end, the checkerboard patterns would not have matched up at all.

I actually learned a ton about my tools and all kinds of things with this small project, and given my many mistakes, I’m quite pleased with the results.

Not matching the pieces gives a totally different look to the endgrain board.. try it some time.

Great job. I just finished a project and my wife liked it so much that she added several cutting boards to my list of things to build for Christmas gifts!
