My friend Tony came over today and is an avid cook. We spent the day eating donuts, shooting the breeze, watching drivers stop and check out the Beetle that a stranger set up for sale next to my driveway, chasing my husky down the street and making sawdust. This was the result. I’d say it’s something to be proud of. Good work Tony! Tony wanted a blood gutter so he bought me a new bit. BE Maple, Purpleheart and a Macaasar Ebony Edge finished with Butcher block oil.

Thanks for looking!
Pat

Now that is real nice… good one… and a juice groove… sweet.
I just love the pattern, colours and timber selection…

Hi Tony: That is a very nice cutting board,love the choice of woods.I too make a lot of cutting boards and rolling pins. Just joined Lumberjocks a few weeks ago,as soon as i learn to navigate the site, I will post some of mine. Have one question tho, are you glueing end grain to end grain here? Might lead to cracking in the future

Terrific board! The color contrast is perfect. I was just looking at some ebony at the lumber mill the other day, but it is very expensive.

Rock,
This is an end grain board, thus the faces are glued.

That maple and purpleheart end grain is harder than Japanese arithmetic :) Awesome selection of woods, great contrast. If these things weren’t so hard on my planer blades, so hard to sand, so time consuming to make…I would make more for gifts to my “Foodie” friends :) Great work and layout. My wife is still bugging me for one after I gave away a Cherry/Purpleheart board I made for her mom…..Maybe when I get around to pulling my planer blades and giving them a hone will I do this project again :)

Did you make the one on the counter in the background?
