I made my girlfriend an end grain cutting board for Christmas. This was my first, it’s made of walnut, maple, and cherry.

very nice first effort. I did one like this and it is my least favorite. It is too busy for me.

Check out where I have gone to. My projects and blog.

Have never made one. Looks good. So many on the go here I may have to make one so I can stay with the “IN” crowd :)

Nicely done. Those three woods are a classic combo. It looks like a big board from the pics. What are the dimensions?

Phil- Nice I like your ideas!

Joe- If I can remember correctly it’s 11”x14” and about 1-3/4” thick. I like the boards you have made also! I hope by next Christmas I can make a few, and with more interesting patterns.

Nice job, with over 200 boards done I can say your into it now! One thing I was taught by the masters on here is to watch your grain orientation when doing these. When your cutting make sure you lay them down the same way so when you flip and glue them grain flow will be the same through the whole board.

Nice job, enjoy!

I like it! I’ve made a few boards but only one end-grain and I really enjoyed the process. I may copy your design.
