My first end grain cutting board made for my step son this last Christmas. Woods used include cherry, hard maple, bigleaf maple, madrone, Monterey Cypress and I think there was some hickory….not sure about that though. So many woods! I know I wanted to use some hickory- maybe I just wanted to but never included it….
I made several other cutting boards at the same time- all edge grain. They look really good but nothing like the way the end grain pops!
Finished with lots and lots of sanding and mineral oil.
