This is my first shot at cutting boards. I don’t think I made them end grain though. Really not sure though. I was pleased with how they turned out but definitely have room for improvement.

Looks good from here : )
Trying to determine if I’m seeing router burn or sanding dust in your profiled edge board.
I have tips for cleaning up both if you’d like : )

They look great. If you want end grain you would need to slice the last pictured one into 1” or so strips, turn them on edge and glue them up one more time. Maybe next time, these will serve you well. Good job.

Cutting boards are harder than they look. Love it. The contrasting dark and light wood is awesome!

Thanks everyone. Sure Dusty, I’ll take all the tips I can get. It is router burn. Like a fool I tried the routing in one pass (lesson learned). I tried and tried sanding it but couldn’t get it all

Nice work on your first go at cutting boards. My addiction is progressing slowly, but steadily. I’ll be posting my first two end-grain boards in the next week or so.

I love the classic walnut/maple combo

Nice looking CB’s. It is nice to experiment with different techniques, designs and woods. We look forward to your future projects.
