Made an end grain cutting board for my wife for xmas. Hard maple. I won’t be making another unless I fine someone with a big drum sander. My 10-20 didn’t cut it, as it always leaves a little line where the part not getting sanded on a particular pass. Ended up building a router sled and then using my belt sander. That wood is too hard to have a reasonable expectation of level, when sanding by hand! Coated with Watco Butcher Block finish.

Hope that you did NOT put a scratch on it when you carved the turkey. ;)
Looks like it is a good size. Nice.
