I don’t really have any pictures of the making of the board it wasn’t on my mind when I finished this a few weeks back. I made several cutting boards for christmas in december but I didn’t take any final pictures because I ran out of time. I had to pack them up and head out the day they where done. I’ll most likely post some of the construction pictures on my blog because I can. This piece was made from 4 scraps I had left over from the ones I made from christmas.

I ended up sawing them in half and glued them up the final result is about a 12’‘x6’’ and 3/8’’ thick little cutting board. I actually like the really thin board most of the times you think of end grain cutting boards as these big beafy monsters but I like how thin this is and I use it as a small slicing board. I might make a larger version that’s just as

It’s made from maple, cherry and walnut I finished with very deluted salad bowl varnish, then 2 coats of wax.

Efficient use of little wood too. I’m concerned about warping, but let us know how much it does if it does happen.

@jayman7
That’s true, who knows how badly it will warp over time I will say I like the light convience of it though hopefully it’ll stay flat.

Very nice. This is the first end grain board this thin I have seen. I ask this as I don’t know the answer, beyond the possibility of warp, how strong/durable will the glue seams be as they only have 3/8” of face to work with?

It feels pretty solid, I would have to try very very hard to break it if I wanted too, but the glue may give out over time who knows. I’ll have to try and remember to post back a year from now how the cutting board has held up.
