Made another cutting board (this one with the end grain up) for my sister-in-law. Maple and Canary Wood. I glued up a block of the scraps and turned some feet to keep the bottom of the board away from any liquid. I also have come across some “tap and die” letters and have now taken to marking all of the stuff I make.

The segmented feet add a nice touch.

I like your grain patterns. Reminds me of Van Gogh’s Starry Night.

Nice board, Sure the woodwhisper would be proud. The only suggestion would be watch your grain orientation. This would have made it even a nicer flow. I was taught this by many of the masters on here. With over 100 boards sold it a must for me on glue ups. Have fun.
