Thanks to LJs who have posted their end grain cutting boards; special thanks to the WOODWHISPERER for a very good video tutorial. I chose to use Red Oak, Wenge, Purple heart and Maple. I’m very pleased with the results and am now planning to do a few more. This is a very satisfying project.

The completed size is 11 3/4”” x 13 1/2” x 1 3/8”. Each block is 1 1/2” x 1 5/8”, Tim. Seeing the projects RickL and ken complete makes this look like kids’ stuff; I appreciate your encouraging words. Ward- I finished it with Mineral oil. In fact, I really had no idea Mineral oil is marketed thru the drug stores for use as a laxative. I had to be away Saturday and asked my wife if she would drop by and pick some up for me. The friendly clerk greeted her from across the store, she shouted back “Rick wants me to get him some mineral oil”. She was directed to the laxative aisle. Very funny.
