I watched the wood wisperers video on making an end grain cutting board and made my version of it. It measures a little over 8”x10 1/2”. It has 4 coats of salad bowl finish on it. It is made of black walnut and cherry. I made this one for a buddy that gives me my rough cut lumber from his home made saw mill. The saw mill is made of John Deere tractor parts.

End grain boards are a lot of work but the end justifies the means. Nice work.

Nice job, I needed the push to get started. You make it look sooooo easy. The wood selection is eye popping as well. I need something like this for Christmas.

Nice work. I am planning on making cutting boards to give my staff at work for Christmas. I too watched the Whisperer’s video. I am thinking of using purple heart like he did, but I don’t have a good source around here so your wood combinations may just be the ticket.

Now take it one step further and stagger the second glue up for a different and much stronger board,
