I finally got around to trying my hand at an end grain cutting board. I followed the instructions on Wood Whisperer, and the finished size is 11” x 16” x 1.25”. Wood used is ash and hickory, finished with danish oil.
Some of the corners don’t match up exactly, and glue up was a challenge, but overall I’m pleased with the results.

Thanks for looking.
