Two sided, made of maple and walnut, 3/8” roundover. I love the way this one turned out, the maple darkened just a tad after the oil. Finished with 4 coats of Howard’s BB Oil and 4 coats of Howards BB Conditioner.

Good thing I can make good looking regular cutting boards, because I suck at end-grain.

Nothing wrong with simple – just don’t give up on those end grain boards—- lots of fun once you get the idea down.

Nice work, Very clean and great color. I’m sure you can do End Grain fine. I have made over 300 of them if you have any questions let me know we can try to figure it out.

The end grain boards will come to you…... here’s a hint..: more glueups.

Easy for you to say easy, but since I suck at this it still looks impressive to me.
