My first endgrain cutting board. It’s simple and made of maple and cherry and is finished with mineral oil

Lots of little joints, and they all look tight from where I’m sitting. Nice job!

I like the addition of the handles and the little rubber nub feet (they blend in nicely). How large is this board? I wondering if it is thinner and so that’s why you added feet in the center of the board too, for a total of 6-feet, rather than the usual 4-feet at the corners?

Thanks guys. The board is 15×19 and is 1.25 thick. I have lots of the door bumpers so I figured why not add 2 in the middle.

Very nice cutting board. You’ll get a lot of use from it and appreciate it more because you made it yourself!
The grip detail is a super nice touch!!
Thanks for sharing…......Jim
