They all look great to me.
I’d like to start making some.
When it comes down to flattening your full boards after assembly, are you using a drum sander or a thickness planer? Approx. how thick are the cutting boards when complete?

Thanks for the comments!
I am using my planer, utilizing a sacrificial board that is about a foot longer than the actual board. I am doing this to help in eliminating any snipe. Generally the boards end up being about .650 thick. After the final planing, I hand sand and then treat them with mineral oil before use.
