This was a fun project. The first cutting board is maple and purple heart (std CBdesigner pattern), and the second is a slightly different with maple and walnut. I was particularly happy with the grain pattern on the maple/walnut board, it really jumps out. With these two boards, I routed out finger holds to make them easier to lift.

Those look nice. Are they on feet? or are they reversible? About 1” thick? I like the patterning. Nice!

Yes Barb, the boards are reversible and they are about an inch thick. The purple heart board is a bit thicker than the one with walnut.

Both look great. Man, I love Purpleheart.

Are they endgrain, especially the purpleheart/maple combo? I ask because I have a heck of a time getting the endgrain on Purpleheart to look as good as you’ve managed here.

Really beautiful.

Oh my, those are sweet.
Classic designs, but sweet none the less.

Wonderful job,
Steve

Yes, all of the boards are endgrain. The finish is a mixture of mineral oil and bee’s wax.

They are beautiful and well made. Like the choice of great woods and the routed handles. Great job!
