Started a New Years resolution to dedicate and improve my woodworking skills. This cutting board is part of it. I was going for a brick and mortar look and looks like I achieved it.

Be Bliss,

Love it! What woods, is the dark wood end grain? Like the handles. I usually try for the not so obvious but yours look so good!

This board is made of paduck and Ash. The paduck is the reddish and Ash is the light coloured one. Board is mostly endgrain, expect the 6 long straight Ash stripes. The edge grain Ash strip was glued up on the second phase of glue up.

Hope that cleared any doubts.

Used a 1/4 inch round over bit for making the handles using pantorouter with a custom template. Then “little” bit of sanding afterwards. Looking to get a 1/2 inch round over bit.
