After building and selling my first end grain cutting board, the requests have started coming in for more. This one is made from walnut, maple, and cherry, then soaked in a mineral oil bath overnight. I hope you all enjoy the pics as much as the new owner is enjoying it in her kitchen!!

Great looking board, nice colours and finish! Looks like the groove and edges came out real nice.

Nice, traditional and solid looking!
Bonus points for perfecting and sanding out the burn marks in that groove, I know you had them 8^)

When you say mineral oil bath, did you actually submerge the entire board? I’ve been wanting to do that versus simply re-applying every few hours for a week but I can’t locate a reasonable quantity of mineral oil at a good price.

Looking good! Did you use some program for design or it is sorted randomly ?
When I make some design similar to your cutting board,I found much easier to create design by using program. It helps a lot.
Anyway nice job.

Jake nicely done. I’ve done a bunch of those myself. I actually run the second glue up through my surface planer but I add a scrap board to the ends to address tear-out. Wondering if you do the same ?

splintergroup,

Thank you for the kind words. I did have some burn marks from the juice groove and there is no way my OCD is going to let me leave them there! This is the first board that I submerged and I like it better than spending a couple of hours reapplying oil. I initially let this one soak for about two hours but I noticed the cherry was still wicking up the oil so I gave it an overnight soak and was happy with the end result. As far as reasonably priced mineral oil goes, look on Amazon for Ultra Pro Mineral Oil. It is by far the best price per ounce that I have been able to find.

Vladmir,
it allowed me to put in the dimensions to see what it would look like as an edge/face grain board as well as an end grain board. Thank you for the compliments.

Initially I came up with the original layout but I did put it into a program called CBDesigner 2.0 (Google it) and

rockmolsen,

I appreciate the compliment and I do add scrap boards, typically pine, to the ends of the second glue up as I run mine through a planer as well since I do not have a drum sander….yet!
