Christmas cutting boards

I just finished these five cutting boards as Christmas gifts. They are pretty much identical to the practice board I made earlier, except…flatter and without the burn marks. I gave up on using a router with skis to flatten the board. Instead, I sharpened a hand plane I got for my birthday and set to work. That worked SO MUCH better and was faster too. I hope everyone enjoys their gifts.
Wishing you and yours a blessed holiday season!

Tell us (me!) more about how you created the pattern – what are the woods you used? Did you lay them up with individual blocks? They are really beautiful, and different in a good way.

Sorry, I showed my newbie-ness in that previous comment – since then I Googled end-grain cutting boards and answered my questions. Nice projects and thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the comments everyone! To answer one question above, the boards are maple, cherry, and Philippine mahogany. If I had it to do over again, I would have used a different wood as a dark accent, maybe walnut, in place of the Philippine mahogany. Its end grain is a bit porous.

Very nice. I know they are gifts and will be given away but these board colors sure compliment the cabinets and counter top they are currently sitting on in the first picture.
Well done.

Thanks! That’s why I’m keeping the first one that I used for practice. It is a bit thinner due to difficulties getting it (mostly) flat, and the segments aren’t lined up nearly as well. However, it was the original. I posted it as a project a few weeks ago.
Another unrelated topic, this project sure would have been easier with a thickness sander to help flatten the first glue up and the final board. My pillow block bearings for THAT particular project arrived today. ;) Who knows when I will have time to actually build it though.
