These are the endgrain boards I have made recently.
Pic 1: Bookmatched endgrain chevron. This is the first time I have made one like this. LJ Eddy is the only person I have seen make them this way. Thanks Eddy.
Pic 2: I found a couple 12” wide boards and decided to try a striped bookmatched endgrain board.
Pic 3: an alternating color endgrain board.
Pic 4: Is an attempt at a McLeanVa zig-zag thank you sir.
Pic 5: a bookmatched endgrain zig zag variation

That is a really handsome board. Just enough going on without being too busy. The endgrain bookmatch on the long pieces looks great. You should be proud.

Good job on all of them,

Larry, I must have missed your version of the first board. Just checked yours out, great work as always. If anyone else has made a version of board 1 please post a link as I would like to see them as well.
Thank you steve.

Great boards Scott! The zigzag one makes me think
of a “Charlie Brown” cutting board :)

Keep up the good work

Very nice examples of your skills : )
I’ve got to give some end grain boards a whirl soon . My problem is that I have selected all of my stock for the face grain and I would hate to end up glueing all those pretty faces together : ) LOL

I really like the design. Almost too nice to use as a cutting board.

Have your say...
