I made this cutting board for a charity event where it was bid on during an auction. This beautiful beast is made from Maple, Padauk, Purpleheart, Red Oak, and Walnut. This is an end-grain cutting board that is approximately 26” x 18” x 2” with each square being 1.75”. I went ahead and decided to weight this puppy and it came in at a whopping 24lbs. I used Titebond III for the glue-up and at least 7 coats of General Finishes Salad Bowl Finishing Mix which really darkened it up quite a bit which I personally love. I used a roundover on one side of the cutting board and added 2” x 2” x 1/4” (8 total) rubber feet on the bottom. As far as sanding, I used my disc sander with 80, 120, 150, and 220 with #0000 steel wool in between coats. I told the new owner of this board that it can used for at least three things… to cut food on, as a weapon for an intruder, or possibly as a surfboard! ;)
Oh yeah… This is my 30th cutting board!
