This is a simple long grain cutting board I built for a guy who didn’t like an end grain one that I had made. He wanted something simpler and cheaper. It is made of some scraps of hard maple, cherry, and walnut I had left over from some other projects. I used Titebond II for the glue up. Overall dimensions were roughly 14” x 16” x just under 3/4” thick. I eased the edges on my router table with a round over bit and then sanded the whole board up to 220 grit. It was finished with 3 coats of walnut oil. Just prior to finishing but after sanding I stuck on 4 3M rubber bumper to the bottom. This is the first time I used adhesive bumpers (I usually use ones with screws) and I was really happy with how they turned out. Just be sure to clean the board real good before sticking them on.
