I’ve made quite a few cutting boards lately, experimenting with different woods. The one pictured was a pleasant surprise. I love the face grain of leopard wood, but really had no idea how beautiful the end grain looks when oiled. This is a smallish board, but the look of it might be my favorite. It alternates with bubinga. Other woods in the center are hard maple and sirari. (Spell check tried to change sirari into satirist)

The board turned out nice. I have never used exotic woods in cutting boards but there are some beautiful exotics that would make a nice cutting board. I would have thought that bubinga might be a little to hard (Janka rating of 2410) to be used in a cutting board. I know it would work, but might dull knife edges being that hard.

Regardless, very nice board.
