Twin end grain cutting boards for my daughter. I used walnut, maple, sapele and zebrawood in a chevron pattern with a walnut edge framing the main pattern. To help with the second glue up of the end grain cut pieces, I made up a clamping jig that helped keep everything square and tight fitting. The base of the clamping jig has a plastic sheet that enables easy glue release and clean up. After routing side finger grips on the cutting boards and sanding to 220 grit, I used a 50/50 mineral oil and beeswax blend as the surface treatment.

Lovely boards, my favorite CB configuration with the finger grooves on the ends so either side can be used.
