1st board is an endgrain board I made for my wife for Mothers Day. Its made from Cherry and Maple and is 9 1/2×12. Next is a custom sized board I made for someone I work with. Its made from Cherry and Birch. Dimensions are 13 7/8×22 x 3/4 in thick. 3rd is one I made with some scraps I had left over, Cherry and Tiger Maple I think. One of the Cherry boards had some sapwood at the corner so I cut it to fit in the middle, it made a nice little design. All boards were finished with several coats of mineral oil. Thanks for looking.

Grain orientation is good and I like the handle/hole/end shape on the third..the curved deds on the first also a nice touch…thanks for posting some well made boards…
Sap wood can always make a nice show…

Thank You degoose, That is a big complement. I’ve seen some of the boards you have made and they are amazing.
