This is my first end grain cutting board. It was a little challenging after I made the first cut and turned them to glue up the end grain pieces. They wanted to slide around a bit, I had use clamp blocks on the top and bottom. After a lot of planing and sanding I think it turned out ok. I played around with the pattern a little, I think that I liked the first pattern the best but I went with the other one. The wood is cherry, maple, purpleheart and yellowheart. The finish is two coats of mineral oil. I also routed finger holds on the end and it measures about 12×12 x 1 1/4 thick.
