I failed to take photos of this one before I gave it to the customer. Since he is a coworker, I asked him to take a few photos of this one in its native state (he leaves it on his cook top unless he is using the middle burners). It’s made of cherry, walnut, osage orange and black locust. I had a little worry about the black locust (after the fact), but I have quelled my fears. The board is 19” x 14” x 1.5” and is sanded to 600 grit then finished with mineral oil and bees wax.

That is a striking contrast with the wood down the center, good choices.

Nice work with the wood combo. That’s a biggy. What was your worry with the black locust?

Nice board Joe, would 19” X !4” be considered big?

Like many woods, it’s toxic if eaten, so I was worried about splinters possibly coming off the cutting board (possibly on the edge) and potentially getting into food. I mentioned this to the customer and he assured me that he had not plans to eat the wood (or to abuse the cutting board in a manner that would cause it to splinter).

I guess it’s all a matter of perspective. Some folks are used to only dealing with small cutting boards, so to them 19×14 is big.
