Yet another brick pattern cutting board. This time I made it end grain. I used alternating 2 inch strips of maple and cherry sandwiched between 1/4 inch strips of yellowheart. I ran out of yellowheart and this ended up being a little shorter than I had originally planned. I routed the edges and here it is. The yellowheart is is subtle but in the right light it shines like gold. The colors of the maple and cherry I used make it look aged and used.

I was highly impressed with myself today. My crosscuts were perfect and I barely had to sand after glue-up. I really have the hang of the cross-cut sled and parallel clamps. No fancy jigs or drum sanders for this girl.

Absolutely fabulous! I love it!

So this makes 13 cutting boards in two weeks!!

This one looks so much nicer in person. The yellowheart looks almost gilded (gold) and you can’t really see the brick pattern in the pics.

I have no idea how you get your glue ups so flat and lines that clean. You can just glue up any of the end grain ones I make
