This is my first attempt at an end grain cutting board. I’ve seen a lot of really cool ones here and I’ve wanted to try one for a while. I have to give credit and thanks to my good neighbor and friend Junior for the use of some of his equipment and a helping hand. I also give credit and thanks to jayman7 for the CBdesigner http://lumberjocks.com/projects/11372 , which I used in the design phase. It was fun and I learned a lot doing it. There are plenty of mistakes here (hence the little board made from scrap). But, I know how to do much better on the next one. The wood is maple and mahogany. I wanted mahogany for the color, but didn’t realize how soft it is. I don’t plan to use it again. I am somewhat disappointed you have to be a bit of a distance to get the illusion effect. Overall, I think it turned out ok.
