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.

Really nice, looks like it could stand up to anyone’s kitchen cooking.

Looking good. The multiple woods really make it unique.
