1st is 16 3/8×12 1/8×1 1/2 Hickory and African Mahogany End Grain

2nd is 11×12 x 1 3/8 Hickory and African Mahogany End Grain

Finished with generous coats of Mineral oil and finished with Mineral Oil/Beeswax blend.

Under encouragement from my wife, I have joined the ranks of hobbyist and have offered my boards for sale on Etsy! If you are interested you can see them at DoubleG Wood Works.

I know all you guys are talented enough to make your own but hey marketing right??

They looking good,but I’m not shore is mahogany good type of wood for cutting board. Also if you are looking for better type of pattern,more randomized,try to use CB designer ,it helps a lot.

These are the remnants from making this board

But sure i will take a look at it.

Oh and as for the African Mahogany, Hardwood Lumber Company of Dallas says it’s good to go. I have used it on a couple and will continue to monitor how it works out.

Very nice Gary. I like how you put the hand holds on the end, that position is “handy” :)
If the mahogany is hard, there shouldn’t be a problem. Heck, even hard maple needs to be flattened occasionally.
