This one is going to a family that is not close in relation but close in relationship to me and my wife… a Christmas gift. You heard right I have already started and finished some of my Christmas woodworking. Only 83+ days left.

Ash, two walnut strips, 2 cherry strips with butcher block oil.

I’m very interested in cutting boards. This one is face grain. Are there concerns on how a face grain board will wear? It sure is attractive. The flow of the grains is great

Great board, I like your use of the grain patterns to make that board come alive.

If you can make a face grain board look like that, you should re-visit making end grain boards. Multiple glue ups and cutting steps. Easy Peasy and you have the eye for design.
