Two walnut end grain cutting boards for friends as wedding gifts. I started with seven 2 1/8” by 20” strips and then crosscut into 16 pieces to make two boards. Both are fiinished with mineral oil. This was my first attempt at carving my initials into a project, kind of fun branding the cutting boards!

Nice looking end grain : )
Have you ever tried Titebond glue for dark woods ?

Thanks for the comments!

Dusty – I’ve mainly used Titebond II on my projects, which was used for these two cutting boards as well.
