I’ve been on a cutting board kick , but I think this might be the last one for a while. I didn’t make this in the conventional way of glueing strips of wood then cutting and flipping them. I just glue them on end and call it good enough. It was finished with mineral oil and then butcher block conditioner. I kind of like the contrast in the walnut with a little bit of the sap wood showing.

The little bit of sapwood looks great. Has a nice “marbleing” effect. Nice work.

I like the way you did the surround with contrasting grain patterns – looks great!
