Parents requested some cutting board but wanted a more high end thicked board. These are all made of Paduk and Beli.

Thank You I am new to all of this, just beginning. Could you explain what you mean or point me in the right direction to research?

The stripped one has grain running in 3 different directions. Wood likes to expand and contract perpendicular to the grain. So that one might start to break apart. I wouldn’t sweat it. That second one is beautiful with the diamond pattern. Nice work!

I was about to say the grain being so random looks like it will be fighting itself this winter. But otherwise good job.

Great work organizing the grain into such nice patterns but I worry that the mix of end grain and long grain will cause the end grain to split come the dry season (winter). Beautiful.
