I had some strips of oak that were leftover from building a table and barn door, so I decided to make something out of it. After it was glued and sanded, we decided to make it a housewarming gift for my wife’s sister. I recently started getting into pyrography so I burned our home state into the lower corner. It was then finished with 5 coats of mineral oil and waxed.

I have a lot of spare red oak and Christmas orders for several end grain boards. Were you at all worried about using such an open grain wood for an end grain board?

Beautiful work! The great thing about end-grain cutting boards is that even a very simple design looks fantastic! Great looking board. Nice pyrography, too!

I know that oak isn’t ideal for cutting boards when compared to something like maple, but the more I read about I decided it would be fine. When I coated it with mineral oil I flooded the surface to allow it to soak in. I will recommend that it is not used for meat, to prevent bacteria, oiling or waxing monthly will also help.

Thanks! The pyrogtaphy is a great way to personalize items. It can be a little time consuming, but it’s well worth it in the end. I agree that your statement about simple end grain designs. It’s amazing what you can do with scrap pieces of wood.
