This is a dough board that I made out of maple, walnut and cherry leftovers. I had something similar made out of European Beech that I bought from Ikea in the 90’s. It had stops on the front and back so was reversible but with the juice groove really only 1 side was usable. The problem with the board I had was that with the grain direction and time it had warped a fair bit (think half-pipe) and move around a lot in use. I also wanted something a bit larger as this one was a bit small. I sized it to be about 1/3 the width and the full depth of my kitchen island and plan to leave it in place at all times to match my maple cabinets. I joined the stops to the board using pegged breadboard ends. The tenon was about 1 1/4inch wide and about 1/2 thick. Hopefully this will keep it flat for many years to come!
