So I threw together my first cutting board last month, and so far so good! I think I am going to try the Wood Whisperer pattern on the next go round to expose the end grain.

Thats really nice, is that an end grain cutting board? Do you have plans for that, I am new to wood working and think this would be a great first project. Thanks, Great job on it!

@weaponX- the great thing about cutting boards is that you can use your own imagination. You can use any size or thickness you want, mix whatever woods you want. You could start off with something basic and get a couple different woods and make 15”x10” board.

Great looking cutting board. Like the different mixture of woods.

Nice looking CB. As Tim said, creating CB patterns is unlimited, so have fun with your imagination. I look forward to see what you come up with.

Nice and very pleasant design. Good to look at. I like your eye for color.

End grain is fun and harder to do. right now they are all I do.

Great looking board Phil. I will be most likely doing mostly endgrain., but I wanted to do the first one as a long grain board. Weapon, there is not a plan for this one but it is pretty simple to make, and the edge border is just a roundover bit that I raised to give the lip. If you would like a cutting board setup I would reccomend searching the forum here or going to and search his video projects. Good luck!

Nice board, Endgrain is the way to go. Last longer and better for your knifes. Have fun looks great!
