I’ve built a number of these todate. Purplehart and hard maple. I watched the wood whisperer make them. Pretty neat. My first was done without a planer lots of sanding.

Good job Fred. I made a cutting board out of the same combination, except I did not go with the end grain or checkerboard effect. I love the way the Purpleheart and Maple compliment each other.

Thanks, it was “Sort of Fun” to do. After the first one it has actually become a little less complicated to remember the sequence of events to get the checkerboard effect. Believe my second one (which will be in our Kitchen) had more than a few flaws in the checkerboard. Can’t give the mistakes out as gifts…...

Very nice cutting board!

Question:
Do you plane the end grain after glue up? Is that what you meant by “lots of sanding?”

Terrific piece Fred. Subtle grid changes really make this board stand out. Thanks for showing it to us.
