A hickory and walnut end grain cutting board that is about 8X12 and 1 1/4” thick. Decided to dovetail walnut feet into this one.

the feet rock!! I like the top a lot too. That grain is crazy and it almost looks like plywood.. until you stare at it and realise it is solid wood pieces. I’m used to EG boards being more subtle.. this is fantastic.

I really love the attention to the grain as well. Nice work.

I would pay good money for this board !! ...the wood combination and grain pattern along with the sweet, dovetailed feet, all add up to a nice quality project : )What did you finish it with ?

Very handsome ! I would be interested in how you cut the hickory pieces and managed to keep so many grain patterns so they matched pretty closely. It’s very eye-catching ! My only “criticism” would be the discontinuities in the walnut stripes, a casualty of such a compelx glue up I imagine.

Thanks for all the complements on my feet! The feet are 3/4 stock and I dovetailed about 1/2” into the board after rabbeting 1/4” off the inside to make the transfer easier. They were small enough I didn’t use my saw to create the dovetails, only chisel work. I laid the strips out in the same direction as they were ripped for the long grain glue up, then when flipped to the end grain, I flipped every other strip to create the pattern. Yes, the walnut was tough to keep lined up during the glue up. There is always a little slipping. It is finished with food grade mineral oil only.
