My office manager came into the shop one day and saw a pile of Eastern hard rock Maple I had been given. She playfully said the I could make her a thick cutting board. She held out her hands to indicate a size. I have said nothing more to her, but as you can see, I did make her one. It is all endgrain, about 17” x 13” x 2”. I am to give it a couple of mineral oil treatments before I give it to her for Xmas.

Cool never thought of doing one with all rock maple. I like the sizes of the cubes being alternating & the look it gives with the off set look. This makes it very interesting. I have 7 boards that I just finished sanding yesterday and will start finishing them this afternoon.

This is a nice cutter. And as heavy as it is the board will stand up to a lot of abuse. Routing the finger holds was a good idea as well.

Nice board. Are you going to route a groove to keep any liquid from running off the edges?

I would like to cut a groove around the edge. However, the several time I have tried, I have been less than satisfied. I have tried the template method, but I have not successfull. Have you any ‘Sage’ advise or special tricks?
