Upcycled Solid End Grain Oak (L)770mm x (W)320mm) x (H)65mm

Another end grain board…......but this ons massive! Designed to stay put on granite surfaces and allows ample room to prepare any food items.

Born from a problem a friend of mine had with not wanting to damage his beautiful granite surfaces. Made using recycled oak window frames, planed back to clean wood and put through the “end grain” process. Sanded to a mirror finish. Finished using a mix of natural beeswax and mineral oil.

Nice. I’d add a “gravy channel” around the edge.

Thanks Charlie! I have made many styled end grain boards and this one still has very prominent place in my heart. Will try to get some more of my creations uploaded today.

Okay, I have yet to make a cutting board so if this is a simple question forgive me. I have heard that oak has too much of an open grain for a cutting board. Or is it just a certain species of oak?
