Made about half a dozen of these as presents and was always a bit jealous of the person receiving so finally got around to building one for myself. Hard maple and cherry end grain construction. Sanded to 200 grit on the random orbital. Dimensions are 16”X11”x2”. Finished with 3 good soakings of food safe mineral oil.

Cheers,
David

That is a nice board in so many ways.

I too am guilty of making at least 12 end grain cutting boards for others, and not making one for myself yet. :D

Sweet. Looking out for number 1. Good for you.

Nice looking board. Wood selection, juice groove, finger notches.
First rate,

Nice looking board David. And at 2” thick, it must be in the 10-pound range?

I am just finishing up my second end grain board. I did the opposite of you: we kept the first one I made and the second one is a Christmas gift for a family member. I also put the longer finger recesses on this board. I personally like the different appearance it lends to the sides of the board.

I’m sure you’ll get many years of good use out of this one!

I don’t blame you a bit for wanting to keep one of these. Very nice cutting board. How did you do the routing on the board. That groove ads a lot to the way it looks but will be useful too.
