Two end grain cutting boards made from 4/4 Hickory. One is 12X16 and the other is 5X8. Mineral Oil finish, soaked until they wouldn’t take any more.

Great job with orienting the grains. These are simple but elegant at the same time.

I LOVE those cutting boards! I’ve never thought of using hickory, but I see that it’s food safe.
I may just have to steal that idea from you.

Thanks tbone. It’s not stealing, I’m sure they’re not the first hickory boards made, but I do appreciate the comment.

Hi, great looking boards. I love how it focuses on the beauty of the hickory grain. I’m going to try something similar with some hickory logs I cut down a while ago. I’m new to woodworking and green woodworking and hope to luck into some similar results. How thick did you make the cutting boards?

Have your say...
