This is my first attempt at making an end grain cutting board. I used some off cuts from my scrap bin. I also learned quite a few lessons from this projects.

That looks cool George. What size is it and what kind of woods?

The size is 300 mm (12 inch) x 190 mm (7,5 inch)

I am not sure what type of wood it is. I got the board from somebody which I cut into strips. The edge band is from some very rare pallet wood. (Rare because I don’t have a lot of it :-) )

My next attempt will be from contrasting woods, but I will have to purchase that first. Finish is grape seed oil. The only mineral oil that I can buy lists a lot of toxic nasties on the label and I didn’t want to use that on a cutting board.

Looks nice. We should learn on virtually every project.
