Two end grain boards and one edge grain board. The large end grain board is Brazilian cherry and maple. The next one is black walnut and ash. The edge grain board is made from Brazilian cherry, maple, black walnut, and padauk. It features 21 holes on the back side because the customer makes cake pops and wished for a stand to hold them while she decorates them.

Nice job on these cutting boards! I made one about a year ago, your cutting boards are way better than the one I built!

Thanks guys. Culpeper (two “P”s) is indeed in northern Virginia and I made the grooves with a plunge router and a 1/2” core bit. Hey, Josh. I grew up in Ligonier, PA and I ran the Johnstown marathon many moons ago. The daughter of the Johnstown football coach and I were once “close” as well. ; )
