Had a bunch of crooked boards and leftover cutting board pieces. So I made some smaller breadboards. I believe I cranked out 16 of them so far.
I was given some very crooked birds eye maple and I just had to use it.
Boards are finished with mineral oil.

Nicely done!

I do the same thing. Often when I make some complex pattern, I’ll cut extra stock in case I biff it somehow (which always seems to happen). These leftovers collect dust on a shelf until I rediscover them months/years later.

You have the potential to make some outstanding end grain boards. The design possibilities far exceed those of the edge grain, and the usability of the end grain board will allow the board to last much longer.

You can also play with the placement of the grain in order to create designs with the grain flow, in addition to the design of the color contrasts.

I believe you’ll have much more fun with the end grain boards. I’d never go back to edge grain.
