Here are my first two attempts at making a cutting board. Both of them are made of purple heart, soft maple, and walnut. I wish I would have added a stip of maple between the walnut and purple heart on the first one so I did on the second one. The second one was my first attempt at making a breadboard end, it came out ok but I had a little touble getting a good tight fit on the bottom side of both ends.

They are both ~ 3/4” by 11” by 15” finished with mineral oil

These are both great , but the second one is awesome ! I’ve never thought about putting breadboard ends on a cutting board , but it really frames the Maple nicely : ) I guess I’ll have to see how “square” my machinery is set up and give one of these a try soon . Thanks for the inspiration and have a great day !
