This was my first attempt at trying an endgrain board.
I first glued up 2 regular long grain cutting boards ( 4 seperate pieces total ), then cut them up again in pieces of 1.3 inch width ,crosscut.
I took a smooth board as a base to glue the strips together.
I wanted everything straight and square immediately after the glue-up, but noticed it was almost inposibble.
So i focused on just the top to be almost flush, and the sides were easy to square up on the tablesaw.
The board measures; length 12 inch x width 9.1 x height 3.2 inch.
Finished with tungoil.
Thanks for watching!

That looks really nice with the wider individual pieces rather than the typical checkerboard pattern. Nice design and good job, I’m going to do one now.

That came out pretty nice! Personally I prefer the single color ones, good job.
