I made this end grain cutting board for a young man who is a chef. He said he wanted a large and substantial board. It is made with Lacewood (aka Leopardwood), Cherry, and Walnut. It measures 25 1/2” X 16 1/2” X 1 5/8” and it weighs 19 pounds. Sorry guys & gals, I’m not at all good with metric measurements.
I enjoyed making this board but it was a lot of work. The weight of it alone made it quite the challenge. I guess I should mention that it is finished with Mineral Oil and then 2 coats of Mineral Oil & Beeswax.
I took the photo at the restaurant where the young man works. Hopefully the grain pattern etc. shows up well enough for you to enjoy. I was quite pleased with it.
