After looking at this site for months for ideas I finally decided to create an account and post some projects to get some feedback. I’m always open to suggestions.
These are my first attempts at end grain cutting boards. They were a learning experience, both for the construction and the finishing. I tried salad bowl varnish, and while the boards looked great at first, the wear is far more obvious after just a few uses (as I’m sure you can see in the photos). I’m sure a few of you recognize the larger board as the Wood Whisperer board that so many people seem to start with.
The larger board is maple and cherry, the smaller, maple and walnut.
