This is an end grain cutting board Approx. 230×340mm 24mm. The pattern is one of my own, Snakes. The materials are American Black Walnut and Maple. The quality of the Maple (which was just what I had on hand) was not good, with a lot of darker wood in it, hence the slightly blotchy finish to some areas of the pattern.

The construction method is blogged here

Outstanding! Like Jim, I too enjoyed your blog. Now, can you use this technique to spell words/names no in the board?

Martyn, I almost didn’t think it was possible to see something “fresh” in the way of a cutting board, but you have proved me wrong!

That is phenomenal and original… fantastic job Martyn!

The blog was also well done, with the descriptions and pictures spelling it out for us in plain (and proper ;) English).
