This is a mahogany and oak end grain cutting board i made for my mam based on the wood whisperer’s design. This was my first project working with hard woods and i have to say the price is worth the finished product. It cost me 30euro to pay for the wood, its quite a good price considering how thick the wood needs to be. I put a food safe oil finish and some beeswax on it.

Adam, that is a super project. I bet your mum is so pleased with it.
You are certainly getting to be good at woodworking.

Nice looking cutting board!! I would be carful about using oak in a cutting board. Oak is has a lot of pores that bacteria can hide in. But mahogany is a good choice!

Adam, my hat goes off to you; great job – I’ve recently been making some CB’s and they’re fun. Keep it up.

Matthew, thanks for that bit of info regarding Oak and CB’s; did not know that.

As far as porous wood species are concerned, it really matters more with flatgrain boards. Endgrain not so much. Primarily because all endgrain is open.

Your choice of finish is perfect.

you can dissolve beeswax in mineral oil. It doesn’t need much. Warming the oil will help with penetration on a newly constructed board.

Rule of thumb
Oil once a day for a week, once a week for a month and once a month for life.

Nice board.
