That is very nice! I’d love to know the steps you did to make that. My wife has been wanting a really nice cutting board for our kitchen. I have been researching them and really like this one. Nice colors

Absolutely stunning.
Love the thin lines – they make the piece.

Awesome board. Somehow I can never get over purple heart.

How do you keep the purple heart so purple? When I put mineral oil on, it gets very dark and loses that great purple hue.

The purple heart that I used for this cutting board was naturally deep in color. I still have a small piece of purple heart from the original cutting board and I compared it to a new piece I bought; theres a big difference between the two one is darker . I noticed when I run end grain cutting boards through my drum sander the purple heart burns a lot quicker then the other woods. Lighter runs and a lot of sanding with the orbital sander should help keep the natural color to not be so dark – On other projects I have used butcher block finish that has a glossier finish than mineral oil.

Beautiful board.
