I can’t believe it’s intentionally made as a cutting board only.

Good looking cutting board!! I wouldn’t use oak for a cutting board, because oak has very open pores that tend to hide bacteria. Teak has smaller pores but is oily and not the first wood that Ill use on something that food is cut on.Something like walnut, cherry, mahogany, is a good choice. Just a bit of advice!:)Thanks for sharing!! -Matthew

I have to agree with woodworkinggeek. Both oak and teak are not the best choices for end grain cutting bords. The oak is too porous as mentioned. And teak can be toxic to some people. If your going to sell these, you should be aware of this, as should your customers. Looks nice tho!

How long ago did you finish the board? I’ve had some interesting (and unhappy) results doing end-grain cutting boards, especially with dissimilar woods. I did one with maple and walnut once. It was gorgeous! I built it during a warm, humid Oregon summer, and that winter in the dry wood-stove heat of our home, it built up so much stress that it actually exploded! Like, BANG!! Many small pieces, and none of the breaks were on glue joints!
If this process is a new one for you, you might want to consider keeping one of the boards through some various humidity and temperature cycles before selling a lot of them. I hope you don’t experience the internal stress problems with your boards, but just a heads up!
Best of luck!
