Just a long-grain cutting board made from scraps around the workshop and finished with mineral oil. Why not end-grain, you may ask? The “checkerboard looks funny,” says the chef-at-home. That seems reasonable, says the eater-at-home.

Awlee,
Looks good you don’t have to do the checker board thing when doing an end grain cutting board. You can do any design you want, including no design at all (all same color wood) .. or in your face the stripes, you can just rotate the wood and then not flip any of the pieces to keep the stripes lined up.

It’s a great looking board and as long as the chef-at-home is happy ;) that’s priority #1

Thanks, Jeremy, you’re absolutely right. I’ll need to sneak an end-grain version into the cupboard. BTW, I saw your thin cutting board—thinnest I’ve seen—very nice work.

Have your say...
