Batch of 12 end grain cutting boards completed, only 10 in the pic (2 were gifted prior to the other 10 being completed so they are in the picture in spirit only).
All but 2 have already been delivered while the last 2 have to be sent through the post.
A pattern from Wood Magazine was the inspiration for these; minor differences were necessary due to the wood available where I’m at (Germany).
Composition: maple, cherry, and walnut. Finish: sanded to 220 on the surfaces, 150 on the sides, finger grip on the ends, mixture of beeswax and mineral oil heated in dedicated crock pot left on at least 24 per side.

Yes, lots of Titebond III, lots. Thank you for the compliment! Cheers! I have to go to the mill to pick up some more wood so I can do another batch. I have this pattern down pretty good. I have the mill cut the long boards to 1 meter. Each of the 12 “blank” boards yielded exactly 17 strips at around 1 3/8 inches—except 1 which yielded an extra strip (I call a blank the long-oriented grain prior to cutting it into strips). It’s nice that I can tell customers that each board was made with 7 long boards (i.e., not pieced together with other strips from other blanks—though I have done that in the past).

I always had a theory if you left 2 of them alone, they would multiply. Looks like I was right.

Do you live their, or a guest of the US military? My BIL spent a couple of tours at USAG Ansbach, and he always said it was a great tour, and he had plenty of shop access.

Anyhow, nice boards, you will be making someone smile.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the compliment! Yes, everyone loves their board. I’m here courtesy the USAF (been here since 2015 and leave in 2020). It is a fantastic tour; lots and lots of traveling. I use the installation wood shop so I can only sell them to break even, but there’s only so much beer you can drink and only so much traveling you can do so it keeps me busy and I love making them. I think I’m going to try a zig zag pattern for a friend who wants a board big enough for a full rack of ribs. Should be fun!
