In my trolling of craigslist, I found a guy with a pile of walnut that he was letting go for really cheap… so I picked up an 8’ walnut 4×4… but then I had no idea what I was going to do with it.
Standard logic kicked in, and I cut up a bit of it into chunks and made yet another (fairly boring) cutting board.
I haven’t really done end grain before, so this was a fun, new, experience.
It’s made from 16, 3.25” x 3.25” x 1.5” blocks. I tried to match the grain a little, just so there was some flow across it.
Side note – When it was done, I was surprised at how light it was… maybe it’s because my last big board (the padauk and jatoba one) weighed in at a solid 10 pounds…
