This is my first ever end grain cutting board. I was inspired and learned how to make one from all of the many posts on Lumberjocks. This is also my first glue-up project. It is made of Purpleheart and Maple. The first picture is of the cutting board, the second is my youngest “shop-rat”. She was excited for me. I gave my first project to the people that gave me a free table saw. THANKS TO ALL WHO INSPIRED, TOUGHT, AND GAVE ME THE TOOLS TO ACCOMPLISH THIS PROJECT.

Very nice looking board RJ. Love the combination of woods.

Looks like your “shop-rat” is going over it very carefully for quality control :o)

It must be great to have a little helper checking your stuff and helping out around the shop.

Very nice. Looks like a very nice build from here.
Love the little one. Nicest looking rat I have ever seen.

Good job,
