I started making end grain cutting boards about a year ago and can’t stop. I love it.
I have made about 12. Each one is different. I have put 5 in consignment at art stores and have sold 3 for about $100 each. Did not do this for money, just for finding out if people really liked them. The rest I gave away for Christmas presents. They were received with great enthusiasm.
Each board has end slots for handles for easy carrying and good rubber feet to keep them from sliding around. Finish is to 220 grit and cutting board poly. They are 18×12 x 1.25 inches.
Making boards is complex and challenges my engineering skills. Especially the triangle ones. Laying out and cutting the triangles has to be exact.
wood is: hard maple, cherry, walnut, purple hart, Birch plywood.
