This is an end grain rock maple cutting board I did for a client to be used for a wedding present. The board is 12”x16” and 1.5” thick. The engraving was done with an X-Carve CNC using a J Tech 3.8W laser mounted with a custom mount I built. Design was done with VCarve Pro.

Looks pretty cool.

The board itself looks nice – simple and classic.

How long did it take to burn the pattern in?

How deep is the burn?

Can they flip the board and cut on the other side, or are there feet?

If they actually cut things on it, will the design eventually wear off?

Can I get you to burn something on one of my pieces sometime ;-) (I’m local to you, but just joking.)

- How long did it take to burn the pattern in?

About 30 minutes

- How deep is the burn?

Deep enough I can run it through my drum sander a couple of times, use a ROS with 240 then 320 grits with no problem. I’m going to guess 0.03”

- Can they flip the board and cut on the other side, or are there feet?

Yep. Two-sided.

- If they actually cut things on it, will the design eventually wear off?

Probably wouldn’t wear off but it would get ugly.

Sure!!!

This is cool! I just finished the glue up for a board very much like this! Will use my CNC for the profile and juice groove, laser for the personalization. What laser are you running? I run a Trotek.
