My First End Grain Cutting Board

I recently made this end grain cutting board for my sister. It was my first one ever and I definitely learned a ton from making this. It’s made from some African Mahogany and Poplar scraps that I had. It didn’t turn out perfectly flat. Thankfully it was just slightly off, so I used some rubber feet to level it. It’s finished with Howard’s Butcher Block Conditioner, basically just Mineral Oil and Beeswax. It turned out pretty good. Thanks for looking.

Yes welcome to the club. Nice job. I prefer rounding over the edges a bit more but it is a personal preference. I also used rubber feet to keep it level and stationary.
