This is fairly large endgrain cutting board made from turning stock. It’s 19” x 14” x 1.5” and is made from wlnut, white oak, cherry and lightly spalted maple. This was the first time that I have used spalted wood in a cutting board, but I tested the structural integrity of the wood before the glue-up. The final picture is the view before the mineral oil. The board is treated with mineral oil and beeswax.
Flattening/Surfacing was done with a hand-held 3×21 belt sander after the endgrain glue-up. Final surfacing/flattening was done with my shiny new low-angle bevel down jack plane from Woodriver and cabinet/card scrapers. The corners were rounded over with a 1/2” roundover bit.
