This is my first cutting board, and I now understand the amount of work that goes into an end grain board. I built them mostly as a learning experience, and I’m not likely to do one this complex again (both because of the amount of work and the amount of wood you use making cuts). The boards are about 12×15 and made of walnut, maple, and cherry. I built these based on some of the “chaotic pattern” boards from MTMWood. In hindsight I wish I had used more walnut to give it more variation, but I’m happy with how it turned out. I finished it with 4 coats of mineral oil and one coat of beeswax/carnauba wax/orange oil mix. I’ll keep one for myself, and gift one.
