My first end grain cutting board, mostly just a way to use up scrapes from previous projects. The woods are Maple, Walnut, Cherry and some African Mahogany. The size is a bit smaller than most people make 9” x 12” and only 5/8” thick. The finish is a mineral oil and wax combination. The pattern was not planed but I think its really nice. It took some work but the family is actually using the board on a daily basis and we love it. It is way harder then the usual cutting boards we have had from kitchen stores. The frame was my way of dressing it up a bit 3/16” Maple and 1/2” African Mahogany (selected the darkest parts that I had).
After making the big projects its was great to step back and do something small and relatively quick. I am been reading up on some of the more complicated pattern boards, going to have to try one of those next.
