Last October 2006 I was looking through one of the many woodworking magazines I receive and saw some cutting boards. They looked really nice, so I decided to make 12 of them for gifts.
End grain of Maple, Walnut and Cherry. Edge glued different widths together in a solid piece. Then crosscut in 1 1/4” strips. Flipped them end to end to arrive at the pattern. Then glued together. No edges line up with each other so they are really strong. Finished with mineral oil. These end grain cutting boards really can take a beating. To refresh, just sand and apply mineral oil again.
